London, Aug 5 (UNI) Former Beatle Paul McCartney has come together with Indian-origin music guru Nitin Sawhney to record a love song, which many believe is dedicated to the former's ex-wife Heather Mills.
He has recorded the acoustic ballad 'My Soul' in collaboration with elctronic music guru Nitin Sawhney. The track is to be released on Sawhney's new album London Undersound in October.
''Paul has done a track about how he feels about Heather and what was going on with the paparazzi because no one has heard his side of it at all -- so this will be the first time anyone hears a song relating to that subject. It's very emotional and a very powerful song,''Sawhney said.
In the song, Sir Paul sings sweetly about how Heather rescued him from the dark days after the death of his first wife Linda from breast cancer in 1998.
In the chorus, McCartney sings of how his soul and Heather's heart are now 'two worlds apart', adding perhaps a dream of how it could have turned out better for them both with the words: ''We could climb every mountain, swim through every sea. When the all world is asleep we could set ourselves free.'' A friend of Sir Paul said last night: ''What the song shows is that rather than feeling embittered towards Heather, Paul just feels sorry for her. '' ''He feels sorry that she was never able to tell him the full truth about her past life. He feels that their romance happened so fast and so publicly that a lot never really got said'' ''Paul knows Heather is a complex person, and deeply misunderstood - but that she has hardly helped herself by being less than transparent about her life.'' Nitin Sawhney is an established a world-class producer, songwriter, DJ, multi-instrumentalist, orchestral composer, and cultural pioneer.
His critically-acclaimed work combines Asian and other worldwide influences with elements of jazz and electronica and often presents themes such as multiculturalism, politics and spirituality.
