Sir Paul McCartney is convinced his new solo album will prove more popular than any of the discs he made in legendary foursome THE Beatles.

The 63-year-old expects his eagerly-awaited album CHAOS AND CREATION IN THE BACK YARD to become an instant hit when it's released next month (SEP05) and believes it will stand the test of time.

He says, "It could turn out to be one of the greatest things I've ever done.

"The songs are not over with quickly and I hope it means it's not going to be one of those albums that comes and goes. This one could hang around for a long, long time."
