Paul McCartney announces new 'Wings' archive releases

music news 26/10/2018

Paul McCartney has announced the release of his band Wings two new archive packages, including a never before seen TV movie.

The band's first two albums - Wild Life and Red Rose Speedway - have each been expanded into limited editions. The Wild Life set will include three CDs and a DVD, and the Red Rose Speedway will include three CDs, two DVDs, a Blu-Ray, and will be presented in it's originally planned double-album length. 

Red Rose Speedway will include the most interesting item for fans - The Bruce McMouse Show, based around live footage from the band's 1972 European tour, it features an animated family of mice that interact with the artists in the style of Disney's Mary Poppins.

The movie was only seen by a handful of people before being shelved, as McCartney was reportedly unhappy with the result. The restored version is accompanied by 14 replica character sketches by McCartney himself, as well as dialogue sheets and more.

Both of the new release sets include bonus audio tracks, video features, tour memorabilia, interviews and more. The release date for both is the 7th December.
