Paul McCartney becomes the second Beatle to join in on the “Songs After Sandy” benefit digital albums, it was announced Friday. A McCartney song will be among the tracks on the second digital “Songs After Sandy” benefit album to help victims of Hurricane Sandy, it was announced Friday. The first volume featured two songs with contributions by Ringo Starr, including an unreleased live track.
McCartney has donated a previously released version of “I’ve Got a Feeling” taken from his “Good Evening New York City” album to the second volume. “I am happy to donate ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’ towards this relief project. In the wake of the devastation it is good to know that so many people are getting together to provide relief for those whom have suffered most,” McCartney said in a statement.
