MGMT Want a Collaboration with Paul McCartney

Paul McCartneyIn a recent interview with, MGMT discussed their hopes of collaborating with Paul McCartney.

“We did play a show with him last summer at NY Park, which was really cool. But nothing has really come of the collaboration part of it. We still would really like to do that. We like Paul McCartney’s songwriting abilities… his musical sensibilities. His bass playing is unreal. He is definitely my favorite bass player,” he said.

Last summer, the former Beatle left the door open for the possibility.

“I like MGMT. I’d like to work on some more dancey stuff with MGMT. But it has to happen organically. We need to talk about it,” McCartney said, before adding, “I can’t call them. If they called me, I’d say, ‘How did you get my number?’ But I’d do it.”
