Kisses on the Bottom is the 16th solo studio album by Paul McCartney, and his first since 2007's Memory Almost Full. The album was released on Hear Music on 7 February 2012. It has been released on LP and CD.
The album's title, "Kisses on the Bottom", comes from the album's lead track "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter," originally a hit for Fats Waller in 1935. Said McCartney on the album, "I worked with Diana Krall, and great jazz musicians like John Clayton. This is an album very tender, very intimate. This is an album you listen to at home after work, with a glass of wine or a cup of tea." The disc was helmed by jazz producer Tommy LiPuma who has previously worked with Miles Davis and Barbra Streisand, among others.
"My Valentine", the first song released from the album, features Eric Clapton on guitar. Stevie Wonder appears on another album track, "Only Our Hearts". McCartney plays acoustic guitar on two tracks, "Get Yourself Another Fool" and "The Inch Worm," but otherwise contributes only vocals to the album.
