Paul McCartney has just posted the new video for his 1997 Flaming Pie closer, “Great Day.” Featuring dozens of fan-shot clips, we see people from all walks of life and races, working, making music, swimming, enjoying animals, the outdoors, cooking, playing — even creating Covid masks. The videos are window boxed in the Flaming Pie inner booklet artwork.
Out now is McCartney’s archival collection version of his 1997 Flaming Pie album. The “Collector’s Edition” includes the original album remastered at Abbey Road Studios, 32 bonus audio tracks — including unheard home recordings and demos — alternative studio recordings, rough mixes, and much more.
A few years ago, Paul McCartney told us that throughout his life music has been a constant positive outlet for him: “I think one of the great things is music is a great healer. And it’s a great, sort of, therapy, and often when you’re going through something difficult, to get into your music is a great thing. I’ve been very glad that to have my music. I think I’ve been, consequently, just been putting stuff into it that seems to have added up to something.”
