PAUL McCARTNEY: Back at Abbey Road

Macca at Abbey

In London yesterday (Monday), Paul McCartney and his band played a surprise show in Studio 2 of Abbey Road, where The Beatles did the majority of their recording.

Part of an announced plan to do a handful of pop-up shows this month, the performance was recorded for Spotify and included four songs from his new album, Egypt Station, which will be out on September 7th.

McCartney arrived at the studio by strolling across the zebra crossing made famous on the cover of Abbey Road. But this time, he didn't kick off his sandals, as he did on the day that photo was taken -- August 8th, 1969.

On Wednesday, McCartney will do a Facebook Live Q&A with students at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, the school he founded in his hometown of Liverpool. It starts at 9 am ET.
