After generating buzz all summer, Paul McCartney‘s hotly anticipated new album has finally hit the streets. To celebrate, the music icon is playing an intimate “secret” show to a handful of lucky fans in New York City. The 90-minute set will blend a mix of new tracks and classic cuts, including songs from the Beatles and Wings.

Don’t have tickets? Not a problem — watch the full “Live from NYC” concert on his YouTube channel or with the live stream above, beginning at 8 p.m. EST on Friday.

After days of teasing some sort of major NYC event on social media, McCartney announced the pop-up show on his website Tuesday. He also took the opportunity to show off his customized subway MetroCards, showcasing the cover art of his new album — which he painted himself!

In the lead up to the secret show, McCartney appeared on The Tonight Show on Thursday night,surprising unsuspecting fans alongside host Jimmy Fallon.
