Wild Life is the debut studio album by the British–American rock band Wings and the third studio album by Paul McCartney following the breakup of The Beatles. The album was recorded over the course of eight days from 25 July to 2 August 1971 at Abbey Road by McCartney and his wife Linda along with session drummer Denny Seiwell, whom they had worked with on the McCartney's' previous album Ram, and guitarist Denny Laine, formerly of the English rock band the Moody Blues. It was released by Apple Records on 7 December, in both the UK and US, to lukewarm critical and commercial reaction.
