McCartney duo to give away single
McCartney is revisiting his The Fireman moniker for a new album

Paul McCartney is offering an exclusive new song for download at an online ‘dinner party’ he's hosting to raise money for the landmine charity Adopt-A-Minefield.

The track, titled Lifelong Passion (Sail Away), is taken from a new album the ex-Beatle is working on with producer/Killing Joke founding member Youth. The album, the duo’s third outing together, will be released under their moniker The Fireman – whose past material has been described as ‘ambient electronic' music.

The dinner party is being held as part of A Night Of A Thousand Dinners, a worldwide initiative to raise funds for landmine charities. For an invite to the bash, you must register on McCartney’s official website on 5th June and donate a minimum of $25 to Adopt-A-Minefield. You’ll then receive a download ticket and some recipes (vegetarian, of course) from chef Jamie Oliver.

McCartney says on the night; “Some music, some fantastic recipes from Jamie and hopefully, with your help, we’ll be able to raise the much needed funds for the cause.”

The song and recipes will be available until 12th June.
