Sons of Paul McCartney and John Lennon Release Song “Primrose Hill” in Their Fathers’ Musical Tradition, Fans Gush Over ‘Beautiful’ Track

James McCartney and Sean Ono Lennon have come together to release a new song together, following in the footsteps of their world famous fathers.

Paul McCartney and John Lennon’s sons have collaborated on a song titled Primrose Hill, which was released on Friday April 12 – and fans have gone wild for the track.

Their father’s are remembered as one of music’s most powerful musical partnerships and it seems that fans are equally impressed by James and Sean’s new duo.

The two men, who bare an uncanny resemblance to their fathers, co-wrote the song, which is a follow up to James’ song Beautiful, which he penned with Paul.

Sean, 48, is the second child of the late icon John, while James is Paul’s only son and youngest child, who he welcomed with his late ex-wife Linda Eastman.

‘So nobody was gonna tell me that Sean Lennon and James McCartney did a song together???; James McCartney and Sean Lennon are out with a song together today, Primrose Hill. It is actually very, mournful and beautiful. Why does that feel like a damn good joke?’.

Noting the familial resemblance, one said: ‘Sean Lennon and James McCartney together is so weird cause they just look like slightly different versions of their fathers and it’s freaking me out.’

James and Sean have both worked as solo artists and this marks the first time they have worked together on a collaboration.

Sean has been involved in several bands, which included Cibo Matto, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger and The Claypool Lennon Delirium.

James has released solo albums and also worked with his parents on projects.

He appeared on Paul’s 1997 album Flaming Pie as well as his 2001 record Driving Rain. He released Wild Prairie in honour of his mother following her death in 1998.

James marked his return to music this year by releasing the song Beautiful.

In October last year, Paul told how he would have been wracked with guilt if he had not repaired his friendship with John before he was murdered.

The Beatles legend John was shot dead at the age of 40 by unhinged fan Mark Chapman outside his home in New York City in 1980.

John left The Beatles in 1969 and he had become embroiled in legal battles over the band’s back catalogue which caused tension between him and his former song-writing partner Paul.

They got their friendship back on track in the mid 1970s and Paul spent time at the home John shared in New York with his second wife Yoko Ono.

He admitted he would have been devastated if he had not had the chance to repair the cracks in his relationship with John before he was killed. 

Paul said on the McCartney: A Life in Lyrics podcast: ‘In the end it was something I was very glad of, when he got murdered, that I’d had some really good times with him before that happened. 

‘It would have been the worst thing in the world had he just been killed and we still had a bad relationship. That would have been a big guilt trip for me.

‘Luckily, we were friendly, we talked about how to bake bread.

‘You’ve got to remember I sued him in court, I sued his friends from Liverpool, life-long friends, in court. There’s a lot of getting over that has to be done.’
