Thrillington is an instrumental album produced by British musician and singer-songwriter Paul McCartney, originally released in April 1977 via Regal Zonophone Records in the UK and Capitol Records in the US.

Recorded in 1971 but not released until 1977, Thrillington remains one of the most enigmatic entries in the storied McCartney discography.

Credited to the pseudonym Percy “Thrills” Thrillington, a fictitious socialite whose activities were chronicled in UK newspaper ads, Thrillington was actually a fully reimagined instrumental lounge / jazz version of Paul and Linda McCartney’s Ram album, released in May 1971.

Thrillington was recorded in June 1971, with McCartney as producer, and was intended to be released shortly thereafter. Arranger Richard Anthony Hewson was asked to work on the orchestrations before Ram had yet been released.

When Paul and Linda decided to form Wings the album was shelved, and not released until 1977. Although McCartney initially kept his involvement in the album a secret, he soon revealed himself to be Thrillington in 1989.

In preparation for the release of Thrillington, McCartney invented the fictitious socialite Percy Thrillington, and even took out ads in various UK music papers announcing Thrillington's so-called comings and goings to generate curiosity and interest.

Released in April 1977, McCartney's name was mentioned only in the main liner notes where he is described as a friend of Percy.

This album is a 2018 limited edition reissue of 3,000 copies on 180 gram audiophile red and black marbled coloured vinyl with a printed inner sleeve and download code, pressed in Europe via Capitol Records.
