  • This is a hidden track that plays at the end of Paul McCartney's 16th solo studio album New. The song is available on the deluxe edition in the UK, USA, France and Japan.
  • The song is one of several tracks on New that were inspired by Macca's wife Nancy Shevell. Speaking on the UK TV show Daybreak, the former Beatle admitted it took a lot of courage to express his emotions for the American brunette, whom he married in 2011. "I started writing these new ones a couple of years ago, when I was first going out with Nancy. I used to ring her up each morning and I knew because of the time difference ' she was in New York ' that I had a few hours to write something. Then I would ring her up and then say to her, 'Do you want to hear a song?' It was a good motivation for me to write something," he recalled.

    Paul added: "'My song 'Scared' is about being scared to say I love you to someone. I think particularly for guys, it's not easy to say with conviction, so I was playing with that idea."
