Beatles legend Paul McCartney has announced plans to reissue classic live album ‘Wings Over America’, as well as the band’s ‘Rockshow’ concert film.
‘Wings Over America’, taken from the band’s 1976 US tour, will include a range of bonus material including a 75-minute ‘Wings Over the World’ TV special, new artwork and photos from the tour. The album has been scheduled for a May 27 release.
The much bootlegged ‘Rockshow’ includes material from Wings alongside McCartney solo tracks and Beatles classics. It is also scheduled for a release in cinemas, for one night only, on May 15. McCartney himself will introduce the film at London’s BAFTA venue.
McCartney currently is working on his next studio album, the follow up to standards album ‘Kisses On The Bottom’. Mark Ronson is one of the producers lined up for the album. Speaking of the making of the album he said “With Paul, you learn to not ask too many questions and just do your best work. He came in one day playing some post-Bonde do Role baile funk-moombahton thing, asking, ‘How do we get this kind of energy?’ And then he played me ‘Climax’ by Usher, and he was like, ‘I love where all the sonics sit in this.'”
