The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer posted the news in an update posted Aug. 25 at his official Paul McCartney website. Macca is giving away a remastered version of the single edit of the 1982 hit, which differs from the upcoming Tug of War edit and will not be included on the album.
The song is produced by longtime Beatle associate George Martin. It also features Macca’s ex-bandmate Ringo Starr playing drums on the track. Both appeared in the music video for song along with the late Linda McCartney and actor John Hurt.
