Paul McCartney, ‘McCartney III” review: An inventive lockdown album

Barring any more surprise releases from Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney has the last major album of 2020.

Fortunately for music fans, he ends this dismal year on a high note with “McCartney III,” out Friday. The album is a long-awaited sequel in his trilogy of self-titled albums: 1970’s “McCartney” and 1980’s “McCartney II,” both of which received mostly negative reviews upon their releases. The Beatles icon recorded this new album completely solo in lockdown, and like its predecessors, plays all the instruments.

Keeping in the spirit of those first two albums, “McCartney III” is largely experimental, and is less interested in delivering easily digestible, radio-friendly hits than it is expanding McCartney’s sonic palette. “Deep Deep Feeling,” a heady album standout, is an eight-and-a-half-minute meditation on the “deep, deep pain” of falling helplessly in love. The song frequently shifts tempo, layering piano loops, foreboding drums and hazy electric guitar with McCartney’s frenzied falsetto. The result is unnerving and transfixing in equal parts.
