Paul McCartney is working on the final touches of his new album

The follow up to Paul McCartney's 2013 album 'New' is close to being completed.

When asked about his plans for 2018, Paul said: "I'll probably be putting out a new album." He added that he was "putting the finishing touches to it now," in the same Q&A from his official website.

"I’d like that to be something I really love and then hopefully the fans will love it too," McCartney said. "I would like to achieve making that a really great album. Fingers crossed! That’s not what it’s called, but fingers crossed! It could be … it could be the new album title."

For 'New' McCartney worked with producers Giles Martin, Mark Ronson, Ethan Johns and Paul Epworth. The album reacxhed number 3 on both U.S and U.K charts.

"The original idea was to go to a couple of producers whose work I loved, to see who I got on with best," McCartney said at the time. "But it turned out I got on with all of them. We made something really different with each producer, so I couldn't choose and ended up working with all four. We just had a good time in different ways."
