NEW YORK (AP) — The man who co-wrote “I Want to Hold Your Hand” more than a half century ago is speaking more directly these days.

The 76-year-old former Beatle described it in a news release as “sort of a love song, but a raunchy love song.”

The song has been made available on digital and streaming platforms, so radio airplay doesn’t appear to be an issue. The song will be included in his first album of all-new material since 2013, “Egypt Station”, which is due for release on September 7. CC
