McCartney released his 18th solo studio album, ‘McCartney III’, in December 2020. The record completed the trilogy that began with ‘McCartney’ (1970) and ‘McCartney II’ (1980).

In a four-star review of the latest and final entry, NME wrote: “If future archaeologists take this three-album series as a significant marker of his solo half-century, they’ll conclude that Paul McCartney never stopped liberating.”

This summer saw Paul McCartney play a mammoth headline set at Glastonbury 2022. During the Pyramid Stage spectacle, the musician brought on surprise guests Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen, and duetted virtually with the late John Lennon.
