Paul McCartney’s recorded a Christmas album, but you can’t hear it

Paul McCartney has revealed that he once made a whole Christmas album, which he recorded because there weren’t any “very good Christmas records”. Wanna hear it? Bad luck. He only lets his family hear it.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s ‘World At One’ programme, he explained: “Years ago I thought, there’s not [any] very good Christmas records. There’s a Phil Spector record I like. But I thought I’d just like something kind of traditional and simple and easy, with all the ‘Good King Wenceslas’ and all that. So I actually went into my studio over a couple of years and I made one”.

If you agree with Macca that the world is sorely lacking Christmas music recorded by him, well, don’t sit there thinking that’s going to change for you any time soon. Because, he continues: “This is nothing released, it’s just for the family. It just gets brought out each year, I’ve just got a little demo of it. But, you know, the kids like it, and now it’s kind of traditional, so it’s something they’ve heard through the years. And now it’s the grand kids getting indoctrinated with my carols record”.

I think it’s going to take the whole Christmas break to work out how I feel about this.
