Paul Weller Covers Classic Beatles Track For Paul Mccartney's Birthday

PAUL WELLER RECORDS THE BEATLES "BIRTHDAY" FOR SIR PAUL McCARTNEY'S 70th BIRTHDAY ON JUNE 18th

Available for ONE DAY ONLY. Weller's proceeds to go to the War Child Charity.

What do you give as a birthday present to "The Most Successful Composer and Recording Artist of All Time" and greatest living songwriter of the 20th Century? You give respect in the form of a brilliant reworking of one of their own compositions.

June 18th sees the 70th birthday of the one and only Sir Paul McCartney and as a huge mark of respect Paul Weller and his band have recorded a cover of the Beatles classic song "Birthday"(of course). This passionate cover will be made available for ONE DAY ONLY - On June 18th (Macca's birthday) and it will be available on Itunes and other digital partners.

Paul says: "I wanted to do something for Paul's 70th, the man's been, and still is, an immense and enduring inspiration for me. It was him and his three friends that made me want to pick up a guitar in the first place. I saw him play live recently and he inspired me just as much as ever, he was brilliant. I just hope he likes our little version, a token of my and the bands love for him and his music. Rock on Macca".

Paul Weller and his band recorded "Birthday" (originally from the Beatles' White Album) in one day down at Paul's Black Barn studios. All Paul's proceeds from the sale of the single will go to the War Child charity.
