I Don't Know / Come on to Me
- AI Don't Know
- AACome on to Me
This double A-side single was the first taste of Paul’s 17th solo album, Egypt Station. The two A-sides are polar opposites: 'I Don’t Know' being a plaintive, soul-soothing ballad as only Paul can deliver, and 'Come On To Me' a raucous stomper that fans that first spark of chemistry into a rocking blaze. The singles were originally issued as a hand-stamped 7” vinyl and sent out to influencers around the globe.
I wrote this after going through a difficult period. Nothing madly serious . . . just one of those days when it’s like: “Oh my God, what am I doing wrong here?” And sometimes that’s a good way to write a song because it’s coming from your soul. We often said that writing a song is like talking to a psychiatrist or therapist but you’re saying it in a song rather than in a room to a specialist. So it was me just thinking this problem out.Paul
