Archival Live Collection One Hand Clapping Due Out Soon

Meanwhile, as previously announced, McCartney will be releasing an archival album titled One Hand Clapping on Friday, June 14.

The collection features recordings McCartney made with his old band Wings in August 1974 at Abbey Road Studios in London for a planned video documentary and possible live album that wound up being shelved.

One Hand Clapping features audio from sessions that were filmed and recorded over the course of four days. The new release features audio of all of the performances captured for the film, as well as a number of songs recorded off-camera that will be made available officially for the first time.

One Hand Clapping features versions of various Wings hits, plus many songs from the Band on the Run album. It also includes a rendition of McCartney’s solo classic “Maybe I’m Amazed,” reworked segments of a few Beatles tunes, and a version of the Moody Blues hit “Go Now” sung by Wings member Denny Laine.

One Hand Clapping will be available as a two-CD set, a two-LP collection, and via digital formats. An exclusive two-LP package available only online comes with a 7-inch vinyl single featuring previously unreleased solo performances recorded in the backyard of Abbey Road.
