Listen to the New Paul McCartney Tribute Album
You've heard bits and pieces of the forthcoming Paul McCartney tribute album 'The Art of McCartney' -- from Alice Cooper's 'Eleanor Rigby' to Billy Joel's 'Maybe I'm Amazed.' Now, you can hear the entire record above.
The star-packed 'The Art of McCartney' showcases a broad range of cover songs from throughout McCartney's career, both as a solo artist and with the Beatles. But its calling card is how many big stars gathered to perform them.
Included are reworked versions by Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Kiss and Roger Daltrey. But that's just the beginning. Joel's 'Maybe I'm Amazed' opens this 34-song album, followed by the likes of Brian Wilson, Paul Rodgers, Cheap Trick's Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen, Chrissie Hynde and Sammy Hagar.
Joel returns later on to take a pass at 'Live and Let Die.' Steve Miller tackles 'Junior's Farm' and then 'Hey Jude.' Def Leppard updates 'Helen Wheels,' before frontman Joe Elliott returns with 'Hi Hi Hi.' Heart does both 'Band on the Run' and 'Letting Go.'
Due Nov. 18, 'The Art of McCartney' also includes eight bonus tracks. It took producer Ralph Sall more than a decade to collect all of these performances.
