Paul McCartney Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five on Limited Edition Import 12" Vinyl
Originally a Wings B side, the luminous "Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five" was first released in 1973 and took producer Timo Maas until 2009 to discover it. Amazed at how fresh the record sounded, he teamed up with musical cohort, producer/DJ James Teej, to contemporize this classic sound and bring a modern edge into it, now set for official release on Virgin Records.
The original "Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five" was the closing track on the 1973 album Band On The Run and found critical acclaim for Paul McCartney and Wings with its references to George Orwell's 1984, yet it also tells an unlikely love story through its lyrics. Industry heavyweights Maas and Teej elevate the track and spark it with electronic heat, creating a perfect storm between the past and the present.
Working at Timo's countryside home in Germany this unlikely pairing have refined a vision and palette of sound that is a confident yet tasteful take on contemporary electronica.
