Sir Paul McCartney to release collection album Pure McCartney

WhatsOn Mar 31, 2016

Sir Paul McCartney is set to release a career-spanning collection album.

The 73-year-old musician has unveiled 'Pure McCartney', which he promises will take his fans through his "musical adventure".

Of the LP, which is to be released on June 10, he said: "Me and my team came up with the idea of putting together a collection of my recordings with nothing else in mind other than having something fun to listen to. Maybe it's to be enjoyed on a long car journey or an evening at home or at a party with friends? So we got our heads together and came up with these diverse playlists from various periods of my long and winding career.

"The word 'career' is a bit misleading because to me it has been more like a musical adventure than a proper job. It pleases me, and often amazes me, that I've been involved in the writing and recording of so many songs, each of them so different from the others."

The former Beatle will release the album in three different formats, a 2CD, 4CD and 4LP version including some of his best known tracks such as 'Maybe I'm Amazed', 'Live and Let Die' and 'Ebony and Ivory', all handpicked by Paul himself.

'Pure McCartney' will be released on June 10.
