Macca was speaking to students at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) when he made the announcement. While Paul didn’t imply whether the song was in favour of the US President or not, he did say that he felt he HAD to write it.
He told students at LIPA : “Sometimes the situation in the world is so crazy, that you’ve got to address it.”
Paul returned to Liverpool to host his usual annual song writing mentoring sessions with a selection of third year Music students.
Actor Woody Harrelson was also in the audience. He visited to screen his film Lost in London and had his own Q and A session with students after the showing.

Paul was asked if the greater number of platforms for music made it harder to be heard. He said: “I’m not sure it’s more difficult, ‘cos you still have to have a good song”.He was also asked what he expected from a session musician.“It’s mainly: play what’s written, but sometimes you want them to ad lib,” and the most important attribute for a producer to have, “patience”.
It was announced earlier this year that Paul would be working with Adele producer, Greg Kurstin, on his new album.
Although there has been no official release date announced yet, the album is one of the most highly anticipated of 2017. It will be his first solo LP in four years.
