MaccaSir Paul McCartney has announced that his new album will be called ‘Chaos and Creation in the Backyard’.

The album is the follow-up to 2001’s ‘Driving Rain’ and is scheduled for release this autumn.

Fresh from wowing crowds at Live 8 with his Beatles medley over the weekend, Macca quashed rumours that it would be a double album, telling Radio 1: "I have two albums worth going at once."

As ananova reports, the legendary Beatles frontman has been working with Nigel Godrich on the album – famed for his work with Radiohead, Travis and the recent Live Aid single.

Macca is set to debut the album to audiences when he kicks off a lengthy North American tour in Florida on September 16.
