“I loved watching the first Cloudy with my kids, so I'm very happy to have my new song included in Cloudy 2," McCartney said in a statement.
In other “New” news, what might be an official tracklist was posted Sept. 10 by Walmart and Amazon.co.fr (France). We say “might” because the track names are very strange and abbreviated for a guy with a history like McCartney who has been known to have long song titles. The track lists appear pretty much the same, which indicates they're from roughly the same source. But there's been no confirmation from either Hear Music, his label, or McCartney reps that they're official.
Anyway, here's the tracklist in order for the U.S. Deluxe version as listed by Walmart and Amazon.co.fr: “Save Us, “Alligator,” “On My Way To Work,” “Queenie Eye,” “Early Days,” “New,” “Appreciate,” “Everybody Out There,” “Hosanna,” “I Can Bet,” “Looking At Her,” “Road,” “Turned Out,” “Get Me Out of Here” and “Scared.” We saw a listing on Amazon.co.jp for a 16 track deluxe version (12 songs and 4 bonus tracks), but that listing is no longer there.)
The 13-track Walmart standard edition: “Save Us, “Alligator,” “On My Way To Work,” “Queenie Eye,” “Early Days,” “New,” “Appreciate,” “Everybody Out There,” “Hosanna,” “I Can Bet,” “Looking At Her,” “Road,” and “Scared.” (Leaving off “Turned Out,” “Get Me Out of Here” from the Deluxe version.)
The deluxe version of the album can be ordered on iTunes and on Amazon.com,Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.co.uk and Walmart. You can order the vinyl on Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.jp and Amazon.co.uk. The standard CD is available from Amazon.com and Walmart. Also available on Amazon.co.uk is a Mint Pack, but which appears to be the standard CD. The MP3 is available in the U.S., the UK and Japan.
MORE COVERS: A bunch of new covers of "New" have popped up on YouTube in the past couple of weeks. We took a look at some of them here.
