Paul McCartney’s Next Reissue Is ‘Flowers In The Dirt’

Flowers in the Dirt is the tenth release in the Paul McCartney Archive Collection. The multi-disc edition of the 1989 album will be released on March 24.

Flowers in the Dirt was the eighth solo album from McCartney and was seen as a return to quality after a number of less than stellar releases. Four of the tracks on the album were co-written with Elvis Costello (listed under his real name, Declan MacManus) who also sang with Paul on the track You Want Her, Too. Also appearing on the album was David Gilmour on the track We Got Married.

The album went to number 1 on the U.K. Albums chart, 18 in Australia and 21 in the U.S.

The original 13-track album was remastered at Abbey Road Studios. Added for the deluxe edition are 18 tracks across two discs with demos for the album. Paul said “The demos are red hot off the skillet and that’s why we wanted to include them on this boxed set. What’s great about these songs is that they’ve just been written. So there’s nothing more hot off the skillet as I say. So that was the kind of great instant thing about them. I hadn’t listened to them in ages but when I did I knew we had to put them out. We made a little tape of them and sent them to Elvis, who loved them too. We said we should put out an EP or something and now the moment’s finally arrived.”

A DVD in the Deluxe Set includes ten music videos, a three-part Creating Flowers in the Dirt and the Put It There documentary. Buyers will also be able to download thirteen original b-sides, remixes and single edits and three unheard cassette demos.
