Here's another clue for you all


The above video was posted on Twitter and Facebook by Paul McCartney yesterday, and has puzzled fans all over the world. It consists of five seconds of audio, and sounds like snippets of McCartney songs played very fast.

Andrew Lubman posted this explanation on Facebook: "It's about 62 snippets of songs, each lasting about 80 milliseconds (8 hundredths of a second--or, a little less than a tenth of a second). I think they're all solo songs. I didn't recognize any of them as being from the Beatles' catalog. I definitely hear Paul's voice in many of the clips, and maybe a little of Linda's in one. Pretty sure I heard "Let 'Em In", "Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five", "Band on the Run", maybe "Pipes of Peace", and "We All Stand Together" (I grabbed the audio on the computer, and listened to 80 milliseconds at a time--otherwise it goes by too fast to identify anything when playing the whole 5-second clip.)"

It could well be that this is an early clue to an upcoming compilation of Paul McCartney's songs. Previously we've had "Wings Greatest", "All The Best!" and "Wingspan", but a new compilation is likely to feature the remastered (and sometimes remixed) versions of the songs, taken from previous and upcoming releases in McCartney's ongoing "Archives" project.
