McCartney: ‘Something New’

In July 1964, The Beatles released “Something New,” their fifth album in the U.S. Today’s NYTimes includes an article about Paul McCartney composing music for the New York City Ballet. The man is 68 and still giving us “something new” — a wonderful example of an artist pushing the boundaries of his creativity. He’s moved beyond rock and pop before with classical compositions, a book of poems, and exhibitions of his paintings. Read the article by Daniel J. Wakin here, and get the NYT if you want more of this kind of cultural reporting.
