Paul McCartney to release 3-track Record Store Day cassette

Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney in 1989

Paul McCartney has announced that he’ll release a three-track cassette for this year’s Record Store Day.

Titled Flowers In The Dirt – The Cassette Demos With Elvis Costello, the limited edition release features I Don’t Want To Confess, Shallow Grave and Mistress & Maid which were all recorded in 1989.

It’ll be on sale on April 22 and comes after the re-launch of the Flowers In The Dirt Archive Collection, which will arrive on March 24.

McCartney says: “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. 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.”

Last month, McCartney released a studio demo and video for My Brave Face along with an audio stream of Twenty Fine Fingers from the record.

Along with a standard version of Flowers In The Dirt, the album also be released in a deluxe box set, featuring unreleased demos, videos, a notebook of McCartney’s handwritten lyrics, a collection of Linda McCartney photographs and a 112-page hardcover book.
