Paul McCartney is hoping to hit some smaller venues in support of his new album Egypt Station.

"Before August, we might just do a couple of little gigs, just because they're fun," McCartney told the BBC in a recent interview. "We once played the Hundred Club [in London], we once played the Cavern [in Liverpool], and those little gigs, they're really nice to do. ... It not only takes you back to where you started, but there's the intimacy in the audience, and you can have a lot of fun. And you sometimes don't feel like it's quite so precious. Because if there's 40,000 people who paid all that money, you've gotta think about pleasing them. If there's only a couple hundred, and we're all having a party, you just think, 'We can throw in 'Matchbox,' or we'll throw in an odd number that we'd only do at sound checks or something. So they're good fun for that reason."

Egypt Station is slated for release on September 7.
