By Posted on 0 8

Ed Sheeran is rumoured to been cast in a new comedy musical directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, The Beach) and written by Richard Curtis (Notting Hill, Love Actually, Blackadder).

In addition to an on-screen appearance, Sheeran has also possibly been asked to write new music for the film, which tells the story of a busker who wakes up one day as the only person on the planet who remembers The Beatles. The working title is understood to be “All You Need is Love”.
Ed Sheeran is known to be a big fan of The Beatles, owning a guitar given to him by Sir Paul McCartney, following Sheeran’s cover of the Beatles’ ‘In My Life’ at the 2014 Grammys ceremony.

The singer has now entered into talks to appear in Danny Boyle’s next movie – the Richard Curtis penned music-themed comedy tentatively titled All You Need Is Love.
According to The Daily Mail, Sheeran would star alongside Cinderella’s Lily James, Eastenders actor Himesh Patel, and Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon.

This story appears in the March 2018 issue of National Geographic magazine. Paul McCartney is leading the Meat Free Monday campaign, asking people to skip meat once a week to “help slow climate change, and more..

Through the interview, Paul discusses his personal choices in becoming a vegetarian and why he’s now advocating for “meat moderators”: people who reduce their consumption of meat intake as part of their weekly food routine.

“I support a lot of causes, but this particular one is personal for me because it is how I live,” said McCartney. “Through this campaign, I can say to people, ‘Just try it,’ and show people that it can actually be quite fun when you look at what you do, what you eat, how you live and think, ‘Is this what I’m gonna do for the rest of my life or would it be kind of interesting to try making a change?’”

 

 

Goldberg said, “At National Geographic, we’ve been illuminating the world for the last 129 years — first in words and pictures, and now across our digital platforms, with information that’s on the side of science, on the side of facts and on the side of the planet.

Within our yellow border, we’re creating a portal for the planet’s curious people, giving those with an insatiable quest for knowledge the information that allows them to make informed decisions and affect positive change. We are thrilled that Paul chose National Geographic to bring his message about environmental sustainability to a global audience.”

‘YOU GAVE ME THE ANSWER’ – YVONNE FROM THE US ASKS

By Posted on 0 11

Looking out of the window onto a wet and windy London feels a little different now that we know the days are getting longer and lighter. It’s certainly given everyone a big, happy energy boost – we hope you feel the same!

Along with the weather, another factor that can influence our mood and energy levels is music in all of its glorious genres! Having been a professional musician for most of his life, Paul is no stranger to dipping in and out of different musical styles which ties in nicely with this month’s question from Yvonne in the US, who asks:

“You’re known to experiment with musical genres. Have you ever thought of exploring some of the Latin American genres like son, rumba, salsa, merengue, tango, samba, etc.?”

Paul replied, “Thanks for your question, Yvonne. And yeah, once or twice! You know I’ve done something along those lines. My new album actually has something which is decidedly Latin. But I don’t know if it will make the cut. You never know with these things, but I think it will and people will understand what I’m talking about when they hear it. But I love Latin rhythms and have often experimented with them, but not a definitive thing like a tango or a salsa. It’s more the general rhythms of the country that I love.”

Of course, we asked (begged!) Paul to tell us more about his new album, but for the moment his lips are tightly sealed! Keep checking back to PaulMcCartney.com to be the first to hear any NEW news and make sure to let us know your favourite music genres in the comments below!
