Paul McCartney to release 67-track greatest hits album

Sir Paul McCartney is to release a 4CD ,67 track, career-spanning collection album, titled Pure McCartney, which he promises will take his fans through his ”musical adventure”.

Featuring songs from his 1970 debut solo album, to 2012’s My Valentine, 2014’s Hope For The Future and 2015’s Say Say Say remix, more than 40 of the tracks were top 40 hits.

Talking of the release, the Beatles legend 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.”

Pure McCartney will be released on June 10.

Macca 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 McCartney himself.

“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,” added the 73-year-old superstar.
