Paul McCartney recently revealed that he has recorded a ‘secret’ Christmas album – it was however, revealed that it’s quite unlikely that it’ll be released for the public to hear, as the former Beatle stated that he created it “just for the family.”

When speaking with BBC Radio 4’s World At One, McCartney let it be known that the material takes the form of Christmas carol instrumentals, explaining: “Years ago, I thought, ‘There’s not very good Christmas records,’ so I actually went into my studio over a couple of years and I made one.

“But it’s just for the family. It gets brought out each year, I’ve just got a little demo of it, but the kids like it. It’s kind of traditional – it’s something they’ve heard through the years and now it’s the grandkids getting indoctrinated with my carols record.”

This past week, it was announced that McCartney’s 2005 children’s book High In The Clouds which he created with Geoff Dunbar and Philip Ardagh, is set to be adapted into an animated film on Netflix.

Earlier in the year, McCartney and illustrator Kathryn Durst teamed up for the book Hey Grandude, which was published through Puffin and is said to be “a heart-warming family story inspired by Paul’s own experience of being a grandfather.”

Recently, it was also confirmed that Paul McCartney will be headlining next summer’s Glastonbury festival.
