Sir Paul McCartney will release a career-spanning box set that will feature 80 singles personally chosen by the singer from throughout his solo career. The collection, The 7″ Singles, is due out on Dec. 2 and will come in a wooden art crate and is limited to 3,000 copies.


With a total of 163 tracks totaling more than 10 hours of music, the set — which will also be released digitally — will feature such beloved singles as “My Love,” “Live and Let Die,” “Band on the Run,” “Silly Love Songs,” “Coming Up,” “Ebony and Ivory,” “Say Say Say” and “No More Lonely Lights,” among many others.

“I hope the songs in this box set bring back fun memories for you too. They do for me, and there will be more to come,” McCartney said in a statement announcing the set. The box spans the time from 1971’s “Another Day” to a 7″ version of McCartney’s 2022 Record Store Day song of the year, “Women and Wives” from 2020’s McCartney III. The collection brings together 65 singles with their original B-sides — using restored artwork from 11 different countries — in addition to 15 singles never before released on 7″ collected from previously released 12″, picture discs, CD singles and promos, digital downloads, music videos and two previously unheard demos and a previously unheard 7″ single edit.

In addition to the singles, the wooden box designed and built in Derbyshire, UK will also include a 148-page book with a personal foreword by McCartney, an essay from music writer Rob Sheffield and chart information, liner notes and single artwork. Each box will also include a randomly selected, exclusive test pressing of one of the singles.

McCartney celebrated the announcement by releasing a rare 1971 mono recording from the set of “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey [Mono]” and “Too Many People [Mono].”
