Paul McCartney – “Pipes Of Peace (2015 Remaster)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Early next month, Paul McCartney will add two more entries to his recent reissue series, deluxe versions of his solo albums Tug Of War (1982) and Pipes Of Peace (1983). Today we share a brand new remaster of the latter’s title track along with never before seen photos from that era. The late Linda McCartney shot the photos against the backdrop that later became the album cover. As for the tune, it remains unmistakably the work of pop’s greatest songwriter. Listen below, where you’ll find three more previously unreleased photos.

The Pipes Of Peace and Tug Of War reissues are out 10/2. Pre-order at
