"Fuh You" by Paul McCartney.

Paul McCartney released "Fuh You," a song from his "Egypt Station" album, on 15 August 2018. Paul worked with Grammy-winning hitmaker Ryan Tedder on the song. Featuring a strong piano and harpsichord line, the song recalls meeting a lover.
I just wanna know how you feel,
I want a love that’s so proud and real,
You make me want to go out and steal
I just want it fuh you.
The producer of "Egypt Station" is Greg Kurstin. Paul has scheduled some dates in Canada and an appearance at the Austin City Limits Festival in October. "Egypt Station's release date is 7 September 2018. As for what "Fuh You" refers to, the lyrics do say "for you" at certain points.

Paul took the rare step of releasing a video after the release in which he talks about the creative process behind "Fuh You." This also touches on the general songwriting process, so it extends beyond just "Fuh You":
"Fuh You." Certain songs are kind of written in advance of your recording sessions, and then certain other songs you make up in the studio and you're just thinking of ideas as you go along.  So, with this one, I was in the studio with Ryan, Ryan Tedder, whereas the rest of the album has been made with Greg Kursten. But for this one, we were just thinking of ideas and little pieces of melody and chords and the song just came together bit by bit. And then, I would try and make some sort of sense of the story... So that was the basic idea and it developed from there. That's sort of a love song, but a raunch love song. There you go. Fuh you.
If that makes anything clearer.

Paul McCartney Carpool Karaoke


Paul Goes Home


Paul McCartney Carpool Karaoke
Paul McCartney returns to Liverpool in 2018.

Paul McCartney decides to do some Carpool Karaoke in his old neighborhood with James Corden of the Late Late Show. It's a wild trip down memory lane for Paul, who gives some people in his old Liverpool neighborhood the shocks of their lives. This is a very weird video in which Paul shows that it's not that hard to draw a crowd in the middle of an ordinary day in an ordinary place... when you're Paul McCartney.



"Paul McCartney Carpool Karaoke" was filmed 9 June 2018. In it, Paul McCartney performs a mini-set at Liverpool's Philharmonic Dining Rooms. During the Karaoke singing with Corden, Paul introduces "Come On to Me" live for the first time. "Come On To Me" is from Paul's "Egypt Station" album released 7 September 2018. In the United States, the air date for the special is 20 August 2018 on CBS.

Paul brings his band along and they sing snippets of some of his classics, such as "Back in the USSR," "Lady Madonna," and "Blackbird." This is a great little video where you learn a few things about Paul you likely never knew. Worth watching.

Among other things, we learn who lives in Paul's old flat now and where his father used to do the wash (not in a washing machine).
