Paul McCartney Expands “Egypt Station” with “Explorer’s Edition”

Paul McCartney: Egypt Station Explorer's EditionBass legend Paul McCartney’s Egypt Station has just been expanded with a new release called the Explorer’s Edition. The original album, which was released in September 2018, was the first of his to debut at number 1 on the Billboard 200 since 1982’s Tug of War.

“Egypt Station – Explorer’s Edition is comprised of the original record, plus Egypt Station II,” a press release explains. “The bonus disc collects all songs released during the Egypt Station journey; from studio tracks including the surprise single ‘Get Enough’ to live performances captured at stops such as Abbey Road Studios, The Cavern and Grand Central Station.”
