Never Stop Doing What You Love is a not-for-resale compilation of various Paul McCartney and Wings songs created for the employees and clients of Fidelity Investments, a company in the financial services industry. The ex-Beatle became the mutual fund giant's new spokesman in 2005 in a campaign entitled "This Is Paul", and the disc was issued in support of McCartney's U.S. tour of the same year.[1] On the day of its release, company employees were treated to a special recorded message by Paul himself informing them that "Fidelity and I have a lot in common" and urging them to "never stop doing what you love."[2] McCartney received considerable criticism for his celebrity endorsement of Fidelity Investments, which some considered to be a vulgar attempt to increase his already astounding wealth.[3]

The cover features Paul playing his famous Höfner "Beatle" bass. The label side of the CD is printed to look like a vinyl record.[4] The tracks for the compilation were chosen by McCartney and an executive from Fidelity, which had been given rights to McCartney's legacy catalog.[1]
