Sir Paul McCartney has revealed his daughter Stella is urging him to work with Radiohead and Atoms for Peace vocalist Thom Yorke.

Macca told NME, “My daughter Stella is very keen. She’s got a project, she keeps saying to me, ‘Ring Thom and go into the studio and just see what you come out with.’

“I’m a bit sort of paranoid to just ring him up. ‘Hey Thom, it’s Paul here. What do you fancy, what are you doing? Do you fancy writing something?’ Just in case he says, ‘Er, actually I’m busy’.”

McCartney also addressed on-going rumours that he is to collaborate with Bob Dylan.

“There were big rumours a couple of years ago about me and Bob Dylan writing together, and I’ve still got that at the back of my mind. I would like to do it.”

He added, “But I’m spoiled for collaborators because I had John [Lennon]. And I’ve got to be very unrealistic to think I’ll find a better collaborator than him.”

Paul McCartney’s upcoming album New is set for release on October 14.
