Paul McCartney’s Manager Details New Album and Catalog Reissue Plans for 2013
Paul McCartney will continue to be an active presence on the scene in 2013, according to his manager, Scott Rodger of Quest Management. In a new interview with TWiMusic, Rodger outlined the plans for both McCartney's ongoing reissue project and his current work.
The next McCartney album to be reissued will be 'Wings Over America,' the 1976 triple live album that documented Wings' only tour of America, and the first time McCartney had toured America since the Beatles' final performance at San Francisco's Candlestick Park on August 29, 1966.
In addition, 'Rockshow,' a concert film from that tour, will be released on DVD for the first time. Previous versions for home consumption, video and laserdisc, had songs removed for time purposes, but the DVD will contain all 30 songs that were featured in the theatrical release.
The former Beatle is also currently recording a new album with a projected release date some time in the first quarter of 2013. No further details or titles were given.
In the interview, Rodger discusses his history with the former Beatle, McCartney's extraordinary work ethic and how the reissue projects go from concept to product, which includes an ongoing process of digitizing McCartney's vast archives. Rodger says that, for two years, ten people have been working full-time scanning and retouching the more than one million photographs in his collection.
