London, Nov 16 : Sir Paul McCartney has revealed that his new album is inspired by the Beatles landmark record, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
During the recording of the 1967 album, Macca , John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr created alter egos so they could be even more creative.
Now, McCartney has returned to the formula for his new project, 'Electrical Arguments'.
He will release the CD, his third project with dance producer Youth, as "The Fireman".
The 66-year-old legendary rocker said that an alter ego "gives you the feeling anything is possible and stops you being too serious".
"Pepper was probably the one Beatle album I can say was my idea. I said to the guys, 'Hey, how about disguising ourselves and getting an alter ego, because we're The Beatles and we're fed up'," the Daily Express quoted Macca, as saying.
His new title comes from an Allen Ginsberg poem.
The album, described as a cross between Led Zeppelin and Arcade Fire, is slated for release on November 24.
