Those reports late last week about a second Paul McCartney song with Nirvana were apparently inaccurate.
A spokesman for McCartney has denied the existence of "Down the Road," which was reportedly cut during the same session that produced "Cut Me Some Slack" for the "Sound City: Real To Reel" film soundtrack and was slated for the new album McCartney is working on.
The song was part of a supposed song-by-song roundup by the McCartney fan site The Macca Report, which also listed guest appearances by Bruce Springsteen and Eric Clapton. The McCartney rep called the entire account "bogus," while others have noted that the final song listed on the rundown was title "April Fool's Day" -- meaning the joke's on us, albeit a bit late.
McCartney has not yet announced a release date or title for the new album, which is really is working on. His Out There world tour begins May 4 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and continues to announce dates in a piecemeal fashion.
