McCartney co-wrote one third of the album with Elvis Costello, while David Gilmour played guitar on “We Got Married” and George Martin arranged the strings on “Put It There.” The 13-track album has been remastered at Abbey Road Studios, and will be available in a Deluxe Edition, which comes with two discs featuring 18 additional audio tracks that include previously unreleased demos.

Beyond audio, which will be available on vinyl and CD, the Deluxe Edition will also include a 32-page notebook of Paul’s handwritten lyrics and notes, a catalogue for Linda McCartney’s 1989 Flowers In The Dirt photo exhibition, a 64-page photobook featuring the music videos for “The One,” and a 112-page book telling the complete story of the album through exclusive in-depth interviews with McCartney, Costello and other contributors.
