The songs were presented in orchestral versions, and Paul's work as producer and director was pseudonymously credited to "Percy 'Thrills' Thrillington".

As a VIP guest of President Barack Obama at The White House, McCartney was presented with the Library of Congress "Gershwin Prize for Popular Song" trophy. The former Beatle was the third recipient of the prestigious award after Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder.
