PAUL McCARTNEY TO RELEASE EGYPT STATION — EXPLORER’S EDITION ON MAY 17 AHEAD OF FRESHEN UP NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES
NEW EXPANDED EDITION ALSO INCLUDES EGYPT STATION II - ALBUM OF ADDITIONAL STUDIO & LIVE TRACKS
24 April 2019 (Toronto, ON) - Paul McCartney has confirmed a May 17 release for Egypt Station – Explorer’s Edition on Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. This expanded version of Paul’s #1 charting Egypt Station will arrive barely a week prior to the start of the U.S. leg of Paul's Freshen Up Tour—his first extended stateside run since the One On One Tour that played to some two million fans around the world. The Freshen Up Tour includes one Canadian date in Vancouver on July 6.
Egypt Station was released September 7, 2018 to stellar reviews. Rolling Stone raved, “Macca keeps adding new gems to his songbook, with nothing to prove except he’s the only genius who can do this… And, oh yeah — in his spare time, he happens to still be the greatest live performer on Earth,” while Entertainment Weekly described the album as “the still-vital life force of a superstar who has been there and everywhere and is glad just to be here now.”
Egypt Station – Explorer’s Edition is comprised of the original record plus a second album, Egypt Station II. The bonus disc collects all songs released during the Egypt Station voyage, from studio tracks including the surprise single “Get Enough” to live performances captured at stops such as Abbey Road Studios, The Cavern, and Grand Central Station.
