Paul McCartney Prepares New Cassette For Record Store Day

Featuring three tracks...

Paul McCartney is set to release a new cassette in time for Record Store Day.

The Beatles icon is a noted supporter of the event, dropping a handful of extremely limited seven inches into selected shops last year.

This time round, Paul McCartney has prepped a new release – and it will only be available on cassette.

The songwriter worked with Elvis Costello on material from his 'Flowers In The Dirt' album, and three tracks will be dubbed onto tape.

'I Don’t Want To Confess', 'Shallow Grave' and 'Mistress And Maid' will appear on the release, with Paul commenting:

“The demos are red hot off the skillet and that’s why we wanted to include them on this boxed set. What’s great about these songs is that they’ve just been written. So there’s nothing more hot off the skillet as I say. So that was the kind of great instant thing about them. I hadn’t listened to them in ages but when I did I knew we had to put them out. We made a little tape of them and sent them to Elvis, who loved them too. We said we should put out an EP or something and now the moment’s finally arrived.”

Tune in now.

Record Store Day takes place on April 22nd. 'Flowers In The Dirt' will receive a full re-issue on March 24th.
