In one segment, he explains how he came up with the idea for “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”

“I was with ou roadie, Mal [Evans], and he said, ‘Will you pass the salt and pepper?’” McCartney explains. “And I misheard him. I said, ‘What? Sgt. Pepper?’”

In another clip, McCartney shares that he’s fond of a specific line from “Here, There and Everywhere”: “Changing my life with a wave of her hand.”

“I look at those kind of lyrics now and sort of think, ‘Where did that come from?’” he notes. “It says a lot in a line.”

The first season of McCartney: A Life in Lyrics debuted in October 2023 and featured 12 episodes. Among the songs profiled were the Beatles classics “Eleanor Rigby,” “Back in the U.S.S.R.,” “Let It Be,” “Penny Lane,” “Magical Mystery Tour,” and “Blackbird,” and McCartney’s solo hits “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey” and “Live and Let Die.”

The second season of the podcast also will feature 12 episodes.

The McCartney: A Life in Lyrics podcast series is co-produced by iHeartPodcasts and the Pushkin audio-production company.
