This just arrived from Amazon.
It’s the CD single of Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney singing ‘FourFiveSeconds‘:
There’s just the one song, plus another track with the official video:
Have to say we really like the song.
One of the most interesting things about now having a physical copy of this release is the packaging – especially the detail contained in the prolific small print on the inside sleeve:
As you can see, for just one song, there is certainly a LOT of small print……
Turns out ‘FourFiveSeconds’ was indeed written by McCartney and Kanye West – but we learn they did it with (wait for it) seven other people. That’s a total of nine composers listed:(Click on the image above to see a larger version)
The rights to the song are administered by thirteen listed companies. And the song was recorded in New York, Santa Monica….and Mexico. Paul McCartney played acoustic guitar, but bass was provided by multi-instrumentalist and hip hop producer Mike Dean.
Oh, and apparently that Braille-like writing on the front cover is in fact Braille and it reads “four five seconds”.
