Paul McCartney: Stevie Wonder is a genius

Paul McCartney has been jamming with Stevie Wonder in the studio.
Loved working with Stevie Wonder again
Paul McCartney has spoken of the joy he experienced in working with Stevie Wonder again for his new album Kisses On The Bottom.

The former Beatles megastar famously collaborated with the Motown icon in 1982, creating the smash hit Ebony and Ivory.

McCartney wanted to capture that spirit again when he asked Wonder if he wanted to jam with him on the track Only Our Hearts.

This was not just any request as this song is one of only two original compositions on what has been described as an album of covers.

"Stevie came along to the studio in LA and he listened to the track for about ten minutes and he totally got it," said McCartney.

"He just went to the mic and within 20 minutes had nailed this dynamite solo. When you listen you just think, 'How do you come up with that?' But it's just because he is a genius, that's why."

The Fab Four star recently revealed that he is in talks with organisers of the London 2012 Olympic Games about performing at the sporting event.

Kisses On The Bottom is released on February 6th.
