    Paul McCartney has been rolling out special reissues from his catalog as part of his Grammy-winning Archive Collection series for a while now, and it looks like his next release will double as a celebration of his 78th birthday. As it turns out, the newest record to get the archival treatment is his beloved tenth solo album, 1997’s Flaming Pie, which is due out July 31st via MPL/Capitol/UMe.

    These new Flaming Pie releases include previously unreleased material and bonus tracks. Strictly limited to 3,000 numbered copies, the Collector’s Edition includes five CDs, four LPs, two DVDs, a marbled art print portfolio of Linda McCartney prints, and his Allen Ginsberg collaboration “The Ballad of the Skeletons” — the first time it’s ever being pressed to vinyl — all wrapped up in a cloth-wrapped collector’s box.

    Additionally, fans can grab a Deluxe Edition copy, which includes the same 5-disc set and 2 DVDs, or the album’s straightforward 3xLP, 2xLP, or 2xCD editions. Digital pre-orders are also available and will include the Young Boy EP. Two additional EPs will be available for purchase as well, with The World Tonight arriving on June 26th and Beautiful Night on July 17th. Pre-orders for every archival release of Flaming Pie are currently ongoing.

    Take a sneak peek at the box set visuals and its massive album tracklist below, as well as a proper unboxing video.

    The Beatles bassist has been pretty active these past few months. While some of us were trying to figure out how to use our newfound ample time while quarantined, he got busy performing live for Lady Gaga’s “One World: Together At Home Concert”, reigniting a tongue-in-cheek beef with Mick Jagger, and penning thoughtful tributes to fallen friends like Little Richard and Astrid Kirchherr, a longtime photographer of The Beatles.
