McCartney Hard Rock, Hardly Rockin'

Paul McCartney has plans to release two albums about as diametrically different from each other as possible in 2012.  A smooth, easy going album of standards that McCartney describes as 'get home from work music.  You put it on and get a glass of wine" will include several songs that also feature Dianna Krall.  The material and presentation will be similar to Rod Stewart's series of laid-back releases in recent years.  Paul says he has wanted to do an album like that 'forever', but elected to wait until Stewart's series had run its course, telling Rolling Stone, 'I have to wait so it doesn't look like I'm trying to do a Rod.'
The other album McCartney has in the works is a hard rocking album with a real garage band feel to it.  The former Beatle credits the Foo Fighter album Wasting Light for inspiring what he describes as his 'heavy rock album'.
