Songbird in a cage

The album "Rest" from Charlotte Gainsbourg contains a song composed by Paul McCartney
Paul McCartney has written a song for Charlotte Gainsbourg, daughter of rebel French songsmith and artist Serge Gainsbourg. Last year she recorded the song, aided by Paul, and on 17 November her new album is out, with the track.

"Songbird in a Cage" is the song in question. “We had a very nice lunch about six-and-a-half years ago”, she recalls. “I couldn’t believe that I was actually sitting next to him. I told him that if he ever had a song for me it would be a dream come true. A few weeks later he sent this track. It was a demo. I didn’t know what to do with it, because I wanted it to be part of the album. We had to reinvent it. Paul very sweetly came to Electric Lady. He did a bit of piano, some bass, a bit of guitar. It was incredible, just to see him work”. .

Somebody has already uploaded the song to YouTube, so you can listen here. At least for now.
