Paul McCartney & Wings announce ‘Band On The Run’ 50th anniversary reissue with “underdub” mixes

Paul McCartney & Wings (a.k.a. ‘Wings’) have announced the 50th anniversary reissue of ‘Band On The Run’.

The band was formed in 1971 with McCartney and his wife Linda as the two permanent members. ‘Band On The Run’ was Wings’ third album, being released in 1973. The record went on to win multiple Grammy Awards and topped the charts in several countries including the UK.

The 50th anniversary edition will be available in a range of formats, including a set of  ‘Underdubbed’ mixes. These new unreleased rough mixes were made by Geoff Emerick and Pete Swettenham at AIR Studios on October 14, 1973.

McCartney says of the new remixes: “This is ‘Band on the Run; in a way you’ve never heard before. When you are making a song and putting on additional parts, like an extra guitar, that’s an overdub. Well, this version of the album is the opposite, underdubbed.”
