Paul McCartney Uses "AutoTune?"- Say it Ain't So!

As a big Beatles and Paul McCartney fan, I was pretty surprised to hear Sir Paul using this ridiculous tool on his new song "Get Enough."  "AutoTune" is digital recording effect that give singers that robotic wavy sound.  Lots of rappers who can't sing (like Kanye West) use it to correct their pitch.  When used well and sparingly, it can be a fun sounding effect, like on Cher's "Believe."  This song however, overuses AutoTune.  The whole song is short on substance and below the standard of McCartney.  It sounds like pandering to pop tastes of 2019, rather than a legend doing what he does best.       

Maybe Paul is keeping up with the changing times and I'm just lost in the past?  See what you think and listen to the song, courtesy of YouTube.
