Paul McCartney said he was “surprised” to win his 17th Grammy Award for his album Kisses on the Bottom, which was released last year.

“It came as a big shock to me to know there were 17 to tell you the truth”

“I don’t keep count, I suppose that’s somewhat flash – people know my figures better than I do.”

“I don’t think a lot of the best musicians in the world got Grammys, it only goes to select few, and so to be one of those for the 17th time is phenomenal”

“We were watching it on telly, it was like ‘Oh yeah!’. You can imagine the room went wild”

“The only way to win one is to not go,” he laughed. “The minute you go and you’re sitting in the audience it’ll be ‘And the winner is… John Mayer’, and you do that face, and you smile and clap and go ‘how good humoured am I?’.”

A follow-up album to ‘Kisses On The Bottom’ is currently being recorded at Air Studios in London.

Paul said he was working with a stellar line-up including Mark Ronson, Ethan Johns, Sir George Martin’s son Giles and acclaimed producer Paul Epworth. “They’re cool people whose work I liked and of course, what’s happened is I like them all,” he said.

He added he aimed for the “modern songs” to form a new LP which will be finished within the next few months.

Paul McCartney originally wrote ‘My Valentine’ as a Valentine’s gift to his own wife Nancy. The video for the track features Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp –

‘My Valentine’ was included on Paul’s ‘Kisses On The Bottom’ album which saw Paul winning a GRAMMY at the weekend for ‘Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album’. Paul’s 17th GRAMMY in his career.
