In an interview with DIY Magazine, Paul McCartney confirms that a deluxe edition of the The Beatles “The White Album,” is on its way. McCartney says, “It’s all in place. I’ve just got a couple of essays to approve. It’s all lined up and it’s really good.”
The interviewer then asks, “Are there any moments you’d forgotten about when you were trawling back through the archives?” to which McCartney replies:
“Something sparks another memory, but it’s really nice because we were a great little band–I think we can agree on that. So for me to be a part of that and to be remembering it is great; all these little things remind me of it and I do learn things. The album itself is very cool and it sounds like you’re in the room; that’s the great thing about doing remasters. But we’ve also got some demos of the songs, so you get things stripped right back to just John’s voice and a guitar. You just think, how fucking good was John?! Amazing. We were just doing it; it was amazing. We were having a good time.”
The Beatles released the “White Album” on Nov. 22, 1968, in Britain and in the US three days later.
McCartney revealed on June 20th that his next solo album, Egypt Station, will be out in September.
