Sir Paul McCartney on music production

The process of making music was "easier" in the past Sir Paul McCartney has told BBC Click's Spencer Kelly.

Big Beatles' hits like Michelle and Yesterday could be recorded, mixed, taped and done in one day, he said.

But new ways of working meant that a song no longer needed to be written before a musician went into a recording studio to put a track together.

Sir Paul said he advised young musicians to write their songs first: "It sounds obvious but people don't do that so much these days."
