Take cover

Paul McCartney is taking a leaf out of Peter Gabriel’s book by organising the recording of an album of covers featuring his solo hits and tracks by Wings.

Big name artists that have agreed to do a track include Kiss, The Cure and Billy Joel, reports The Sun.

But Macca also wants to keep it in the family, with the next generation of musical McCartneys also featuring on the disc. Macca’s son James collaborated with The Cure for the album which, according to The Sun’s unnamed source, pleased him no end.

‘James was over the moon at playing with The Cure. He's always been a big fan. They all went into a studio in Sussex and hung out together,’ the source said. ‘Over the years, Robert Smith and Macca's paths have crossed countless times and he is chuffed having The Cure pay tribute to him.’
