In other McCartney news, he and more than 150 artists and music industry executives combined to write a strongly worded letter to the parent company of SiriusXM radio in order to pressure the satellite radio giants to change its licensing practices.

The letter addressed the Music Modernization Act, a bill that has strong support in Congress that would update licensing policies for music streamed by companies like Spotify and Apple Music. Songwriters and performers are backing the bill as it would “modernize” the process of musicians and writers claiming royalties and make it easier to protect licenses.
