Paul McCartney curated career-spanning compilation due June 10th

Hear Music is set to release Pure McCartney, a new McCartney curated career-spanning compilation, on June 10th in three different formats: 2 CD, 4 CD Deluxe Edition and 4 LP.

The 4 CD version features 67 tracks, more than 40 of which were Top 40 hits including “Maybe I’m Amazed,” “Live and Let Die,” “Mull Of Kintyre,” “Ebony and Ivory,” “Dance Tonight” and “New.” The sets contain tracks from McCartney in 1970, his debut solo album, right through to “Hope For The Future,” his 2014 track taken from ‘Destiny’, the most-anticipated video game of the last decade. Not only is Pure McCartney a monumental mixtape of some of popular music’s most memorable moments from 1970 to the present day, it also features curios for the super fans and some of McCartney’s personal favorites — all handpicked by the man himself.

“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,” McCartney says of this project.

“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.”

As a songwriter McCartney has never stood still, dipping his toe in countless genres and styles. Pure McCartney is testament to that fact. From the songwriting masterclass of ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ and adventurous, three-songs-in-one of ‘Band On The Run’ to the irresistible groove of ‘Say Say Say’ and ahead-of-its-time electronica of ‘Temporary Secretary’, described by NME when compiling a list of the greatest ever songs as “not so much ahead of its time, but out of it altogether”, ‘Pure McCartney’ charts the unstoppable adventures of McCartney’s unique and eclectic songwriting talents and shines a light on his post-Beatles artistic achievements.

“The word ‘career’ is a bit misleading because to me it has been more like a musical adventure than a proper job,” says Paul, reflecting on the Pure McCartney track listing. “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.”

McCartney’s unparalleled career has seen his music break global chart records, win countless awards, fill stadiums around the world and become the soundtrack to millions of people’s lives across generations.
