A re-release of Paul McCartney and Wings' 1973 album
Band on the Run is set for November 1, according to a September 16 announcement on McCartney's website. A deluxe edition package will include rare footage of Paul and Linda McCartney, a book of previously unpublished photographs, and a new interview with McCartney.
Originally released in December 1973, Band on the Run topped charts in the UK, US, and Australia, won a Grammy Award, and has sold more than seven million copies. Recorded in Lagos, Nigeria, the album features Paul McCartney, Linda McCartney, and Denny Laine, and includes the hits "Band on the Run" and "Jet."
The reissue will be available in a standard edition as well as two additional formats: a special edition with nine bonus audio tracks, rare footage of the McCartneys in Lagos, promotional video clips, and the television special One Hand Clapping; and a deluxe edition that adds a 120-page hardbound book with previously unpublished photos by Linda McCartney and Clive Arrowsmith, plus album and single artwork, a history of the album, an audio documentary, and a new interview with Paul McCartney.
Band on the Run will be the first release from the Paul McCartney Archive Collection, a reissue program that will ultimately encompass 40 years of McCartney's music. It will be out on November 1 in the UK and November 2 in the US. The standard and deluxe versions will also be available digitally worldwide.
