Above: McCartney plays air drums and sings along to one of his new songs called "Only Mamma Knows".
"I actually began with the work on this new album, "Memory Almost Full",
before my last album "Chaos and Creation in The Backyard" (released in
September 2005). The first recordings took place in the autumn of 2003
at Abbey Road with my band and David Kahne as producer. I was already
in the middle of it, when I began to talk with Nigel Godrich about a
completely new project – this became then "Chaos and Creation in the
Backyard". When I was finished with all work to "chaos" and had
received a Grammy nomination (2006) for it, I noticed that there was
still this other album, which I wanted to absolutely finish.
