Coming off yet another successful victory tour of arena shows -- and even fronting a reformed iteration of Nirvana -- Paul McCartney has finally revealed plans for his next (16th!) album, the appropriately-titled New.

While there were a pair of originals embedded in last year's American songbook-heavy Kisses On The Bottom, New will be McCartney's first collection of all original material in six years, since 2007′s Memory Almost Full. The record -- out Oct 14 in the U.K and Oct. 15 in the U.S. -- will include 12 songs produced by both Giles Martin (longtime Beatles-producer George Martin's son), and some new collaborators including Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams), Paul Epworth (Adele), and Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse). 

Ronson produced the title track, "New," a bouncy, richly-arranged, Revolver-leaning pop single, which, according to the press release, "hints at things to come." More details about the record are sure to come, but while we wait, take a listen to this fun and melodic song.
