Paul McCartney to Get New 4-CD Career Retrospective

The solo career of Paul McCartney is about to get a new four-CD retrospective.

Pure McCartney, which will include his solo work along with recordings with Wings and Fireman, will include 67 tracks from his first solo effort, McCartney (1970), to the 2014 track Hope For the Future for the video game Destiny.

McCartney indicates it was a conscious decision to not sequence the album in chronological order. "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."

He went on "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."

In addition to the 4-CD set, there will also be a stripped down 2-CD package along with a 4-vinyl LP box and digital versions.

Pure McCartney will be released on June 10 via MPL/Concord.
