Sir Paul McCartney isn’t of the school of thought that you hang up your hat at the age of 65 to enjoy a life of leisure and silently back away from the public spotlight. At the age of 71, McCartney has released the first single from his upcoming album of the same name, “New.”

“New” is McCartney’s first batch of of solo material in six years, and you can listen to the Mark Ronson-produced title track below. Look out for the “New” album to be released stateside on Oct 15 with 12 tracks and a slew of collaborators to be released at a later date.
