McCartney played a few bars on the episode of ‘Here Today’, a song that he wrote about John Lennon in 1982. When pressed about the song and Lennon, Paul commented, “I’m quite private and don’t like to give too much away. Why should people know my innermost thoughts? But a song is the place to put them. In Here Today, I say to John, ‘I love you.’”
In 2015 Paul collaborated with Kanye West on Rihanna’s song 'FourFiveSeconds'. But what did the Beatles superstar have to say about working with Kanye West?
“I love Kanye and he loves me. He’s a monster. He’s a crazy guy who comes up with great stuff, so he inspires me. It was definitely different, because we never appeared to write a song. A lot of what we did was just tell each other stories.”
A filmed version of the episode will be available on BBC iPlayer after it is broadcasted on BBC Radio 4 at 10am on May 28.
