New album is Pure(ly) McCartney





The first details leaked out about "Pure McCartney," a new career-spanning compilation that two retailers, one of them Amazon, say will be out June 10, though there's been no announcement yet. Amazon lists a two-CD regular,  a 4-CD deluxe edition and a vinyl release.  We won't know how the track listing will work until the official announcement, which will likely be Wednesday. 

But as we reported on Paul McCartney Examiner, 67 tracks were named in the second promo video put out Wednesday. They are:  “Maybe I'm Amazed,” “Heart of the Country,” “Jet,” “Warm and Beautiful,” “Listen to What the Man Said,” “Dear Boy,” “Silly Love Songs,” “The Songs They Were Singing,” “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey,” “Early Days,” “Big Barn Red,” “Another Day,” “Flaming Pie,” “Jenny Wren,” “Too Many People,” “Let Me Roll It,” “NEW,” “Live and Let Die,” “English Tea,” “Mull of Kintyre,” “Save Us,” “My Love,” “Bip Bop,” “Let 'Em In,” “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five,” “Calico Skies,” “Hi Hi Hi,” “Waterfalls,” “Band on the Run,” “Appreciate,” “Sing the Changes,” “Arrow Through Me,” “Every Night,” "Junior's Farm,” "Mrs. Vandebilt,” “Say Say Say (2015 Remix),” “My Valentine,” “Pipes of Peace,” “The World Tonight,” “Souvenir,” “Dance Tonight,” “Ebony and Ivory,” “Fine Line,” “Here Today,” “Press,” “Wanderlust,” “Winedark Open Sea,” “Beautiful Night,” “Girlfriend,” “Queenie Eye,” “We All Stand Together,” “Coming Up,” “Too Much Rain,” “Good Times Coming”/“Feel the Sun,” “Goodnight Tonight,” “Baby's Request,” “With a Little Luck,” “Little Willow,” “Only Mama Knows,” “Don't Let It Bring You Down,” “The Back Seat of My Car,” “No More Lonely Nights,” “Great Day,” “Venus and Mars”/“Rock Show,” “Temporary Secretary,” “Hope for the Future” and “Junk.” 

And there actually is already a "Pure McCartney" album by Tim Christensen (see pic above) that will probably get a lot more attention now.
