Paul McCartney & Earl Sweatshirt
Paul Earl

Sir Paul McCartney is about to release his new album, New, next week (10/15) and he's been in NYC this week promoting it. On Monday (10/7) he performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, playing two songs from the new album, the Beatles' "Lady Madonna." He also switched accents with Fallon and told him that he invented the selfie. Videos of all that below.

There was also a listening party at NYC's VW/Audi dealership on 11th Ave, and he hung out with Odd Future's Earl Sweatshrit at the NPR offices (pictured above). And, nothing to do with being in NYC, but also in support of the album he gave his first-ever live Twitter Q&A.

Macca's last NYC show was his two-night stand at Barclays Center in June, but he wouldn't come back without doing another show right? Certain clues have led us to believe that he may be playing one at Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in Queens today (10/9), and within the hour. NYC radio DJ Rich Russo tweeted last night that he'd be seeing McCartney on John Lennon's birthday (which is today), and he just tweeted again, "Can hear Macca's soundcheck echoing down the street as exit the subway.. Wow!" Other tweets (that you can see above) also seem to confirm that Paul is in fact currently soundchecking at Frank Sinatra School of the Arts.

David Byrne is wrong, the 1% in NYC are contributing to the arts.

And 'school of the farts' from that girl's tweet made me laugh.

"Hi, my name is Paul, what's yours?"
"Earl... Earl Sweatshirt".
"Your last name is Sweatshirt?"

Earl Sweatshirt (born 1994)

Like he has a fucking clue who he's standing beside

^true, no one born in 1994 knows who Paul McCartney is.

Is it me or does Earl have a kinda disrespectful look on his face, like "who the fuck is this guy?"
That old guy standing next to Mr. Sweatshirt could buy and sell him for pennies on the pound. Earl wishes he could accomplish a tenth of a percent musically of what that old guy accomplished in his lifetime.

>> Earl wishes he could accomplish a tenth of a percent musically of what that old guy accomplished in his lifetime.

try the entirety of every single awful piece of garbage 'artist' that this blog covers wishes they had a one thousandth of .0001% of what McCartney accomplished.

The state of 'songwriting' is just pathetic in these times

Earl Sweatshirt is making good music today. Paul McCartny stopped making good music a long, long time ago.

Princess Stoopz sounds like quite a classy lady, and not at all like a hood rat bitch. Seems the bar is pretty low to enroll in the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts.

30 years from now, no one will remember Earl Sweatshirt. 200 years from now, people will hold the compositions of the Beatles as high as Beethoven or Mozart.
