Paul McCartney Announces Deluxe Edition of ‘Egypt Station’ LP with Three New Tracks

It’s barely been a few months since Sir Paul McCartney added to his vast catalog of music with his new studio record, Egypt Station — but Macca already has his sights set on an elaborate deluxe edition.

Announced on Thursday, the Egypt Station Traveller’s Edition box set will be released on May 10, and will be a limited-edition, one-time-only print of 3,000 units. In addition to a number of fancy memorabilia items, the set will also include three tracks not originally part of the original album release: “Frank Sinatra’s Party,” “Sixty Second Street” and an extended cut of “Who Cares,” one of the standout tracks on Egypt Station.

(As a related note, be sure to read our brand new interview with drummer Denny Seiwell of Paul McCartney and Wings, about the band’s unheralded 1971-1973 era).

The bonus material:

• Limited Edition Concertina Tri-Fold Deluxe 180G Vinyl Double Black Disc Pressing of Egypt Station
• Exclusive Limited Edition Bonus 180G Vinyl Pressing of Egypt Station II in “Night Scene” blue, featuring three previously unreleased tracks — “Frank Sinatra’s Party,” “Sixty Second Street” and extended cut of Egypt Station single “Who Cares” — as well as four live performances of Egypt Station tracks taken from Abbey Road, The Cavern Club, LIPA, and Paul’s iconic performance at Grand Central Station
• Limited Edition Egypt Station Concertina CD
• Exclusive Limited Edition collector’s Egypt Station Blue Cassette
• HD Audio of all tracks upon shipment
