Paul McCartney has said that he sometimes forgets what some of his lesser known songs sound like, as he recorded them in a period when he was "befuzzled".
Speaking to NME in this week's issue, which is available digitally and on newsstands now, the former Beatle says that points in the period between The Beatles ending and getting his band Wings started are a mystery to him.
"There's a huge period in the '70s - I couldn't tell you what was on the albums then," says McCartney. "It was a bit befuzzled. It was after the end of The Beatles and I was a bit like, 'Oh God, where are we gonna go now?' Trying to get Wings together. There are some tracks there. I've seen tracklistings and thought, 'I wonder what that one's like?'"
It was previously revealed that McCartney is open to a collaboration with Thom Yorke, but is scared the Radiohead frontman would not be interested. He also discussed the long rumoured collaboration with Bob Dylan, something else he is keen to see happen.
