The track features Sir Paul collaborating with Eric Clapton, who adds some beautiful guitar work to the ballad. 'My Valentine' is one of two original songs on the as-yet-untitled album, which is due out Feb. 7.
In addition to backing from Diana Krall and a guest spot by Stevie Wonder, the LP marks the first time McCartney recorded without playing bass, guitar or piano. "It was very spontaneous, kind of organic, which then reminded me of the way we'd work with the Beatles," McCartney said in a press release. "We'd bring a song in, kick it around, when we found a way to do it we'd say 'OK, let's do a take now' and by the time everyone kind of had an idea of what they were doing, we'd learnt the song. So that's what we did, we did the take live in the studio."
