Paul McCartney is proud of his 2018 album Egypt Station (and the Beatles legend should be proud of it, considering it debuted at the top of the music charts) — and on May 17, the album will be re-released in deluxe, expanded form in what’s being called the Explorer’s Edition.
This new version of the record will actually be the second major reissue already, after a limited-run Traveller’s Edition set announced back in February:
Paul has confirmed the release of the 'Egypt Station – Traveller’s Edition' box set out 10th May. This strictly limited deluxe edition of the #1 album #EgyptStation will be a one-time-only pressing limited to 3,000 numbered cases. PRE-ORDER INFO: https://t.co/4UICqbVuvH pic.twitter.com/Cj8NZWzfWG
