Paul McCartney world exclusive book event

In a world exclusive event, the Southbank Centre in collaboration with Penguin Live presents ‘The Lyrics: Paul McCartney in Conversation’, which will see Paul McCartney in conversation about his new career-spanning book The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present, on Friday 5 November, 7.30pm GMT at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall. The event will be Live Streamed around the world by DICE and available On Demand for 7 days.

In his first live in-person event in two years, Paul McCartney will exclusively discuss The Lyrics reflecting on his life, his songs and his creative process with Paul Muldoon, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, poet and editor of The Lyrics.

The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present

With unparalleled candour, Paul McCartney recounts his life and art through the prism of 154 songs from all stages of his career – from his earliest boyhood compositions through the legendary decade of The Beatles, to Wings and his solo albums to the present. Arranged alphabetically to provide a kaleidoscopic rather than chronological account, it establishes definitive texts of the songs’ lyrics for the first time and describes the circumstances in which they were written, the people and places that inspired them, and what he thinks of them now. The Lyrics features songs from all stages of Paul’s career including Blackbird, Live and Let Die, Hey Jude, Band on the Run and Yesterday, presented with this is a treasure trove of material from McCartney’s personal archive – drafts, letters, photographs – never seen before, which make this also a unique visual record of one of the greatest songwriters of all time.

The world exclusive event will take place at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, which seats just over 2700 people, and will be Live Streamed around the world.
