When Winter Comes
UK / Music / 5 minutes
Director: Geoff Dunbar
Writer: Paul McCartney
Producer: Ben Chappell
Paul McCartney explained, the great thing for me about this album is that I didn’t know I was actually making an album and it all started with this track really. The music I was working on was for a short animation film about the song ‘When Winter Comes’. I made a record called ‘Calico Skies’ a while ago that George Martin recorded, and at the same time because I was in the studio, I just thought oh wait a minute there’s this other song I’ve just written, so I did ‘When Winter Comes’!
