An inspiring performance from this superstar collaboration. The Electric Lady Studio Jimi Hendrix wall painting frames the setting.

Miley’s endearing admiration for Sean Ono Lennon is evident. Sean stays focused as he sings the counter melody, paying homage to his Father and Mother’s timeless creation.

“New” from Paul McCartney

I received an early morning e-mail communication from Top Spin Media (Top Spin Platform Direct to Fan Business) for Paul McCartney about his next album, New. I am constantly impressed with how Sir Paul leverages the latest technology with the power of the InterWeb to effectively communicate his music directly to his fans.

It is very reminiscent of the marketing campaign that David Bowie used to communicate and tell fans at a very early hour and radiate the news as the day progresses. David Bowie awakened the world to his new album in this way and it was a very effective means to build interest, listening and sales.

The Top Spin e-mail highlights in one fell swoop universal accessibility to Facebook, Google+,  Instagram, Soundcloud, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube.

The link for Spotify does not yet feature the “New” single I imagine this may be due to the understanding with iTunes first, Spotify to follow (my guess here…)

You can pre-order New on iTunes here

Paul’s¬†New¬†album will include 12 new songs, which he worked on with new collaborators. I am hoping this recording will feature a couple more songs he has performed with Nirvana mates, David Grohl,¬†Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear. I am very interested to learn who else he collaborated with on¬†New.
