Egypt Station is the upcoming 17th solo studio album by Paul McCartney, set to be released by Capitol Records on 7 September 2018. The album will be McCartney's first album of original material since 2013's New. Egypt Station was produced by Greg Kurstin, with the exception of one track produced by Ryan Tedder. The album will be McCartney's first studio release on Capitol Records since 2005's Chaos and Creation in the Backyard.
The album's first (double A-side) single, consisting of the two songs "I Don't Know" and "Come On to Me", was released on 20 June 2018.
The name "Egypt Station" is shared by one of McCartney's paintings from 1988, from which the cover art is derived.
Egypt Station was recorded in studios in Los Angeles, London, and Sussex. McCartney began working with producer Greg Kurstin some time after the release of his 2013 album New, and mentioned their working together several times leading up to 20 June 2018 announcement of Egypt Station's release.
McCartney also recorded three songs with Ryan Tedder. One of the songs called, "Fuh You", is on the album.
Egypt Station will contain 16 tracks, including opening and closing instrumentals entitled "Station I" and "Station II". Confirmed tracks include the released "I Don't Know" and "Come On to Me", "Happy with You", described as "acoustic meditation on present day contentedness", "People Want Peace", called a "timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era", and "an epic multi-movement closer" called "Despite Repeated Warnings"
Additional tracks that were revealed by producer Greg Kurstin in a Rolling Stone interview are "Confidante", "Back in Brazil", "Fuh You", and "Hunt" or "Hunt You Down".
On the inspiration for the album's title and theme, McCartney said:
"I liked the words 'Egypt Station.' It reminded me of the 'album' albums we used to make… 'Egypt Station' starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from."
In the promotional event "Casual Conversation", McCartney further clarified his creative process behind recording Egypt Station and described it as a "concept album."
