Paul McCartney has announced plans to release a third anniversary vinyl edition of McCartney III.

The limited run McCartney III – 3×3 Edition will be released on December 15th via Capitol Records.

It will be released in three randomly distributed configurations: Tri-color vinyl + ‘Pretty Boys’ lyric draft, Three-striped vinyl + album artwork sketch, and Swirl vinyl + ‘The Kiss of Venus’ lyric draft.

Each will feature one of three unique combinations of multi-color vinyl and prints of Paul’s handwritten draft lyrics or of his hand-drawn album artwork sketch.

Additionally, all copies of McCartney III – 3×3 Edition will feature new cover art and will include a poster of Ed Ruscha‘s hand-sketched draft for the original McCartney III album artwork.

Originally released December 18, 2020, McCartney III is the third in a trilogy of home-made self-titled albums that began with Paul’s milestone 1970 solo debut McCartney and continued in 1980 with the bold, experimental McCartney II.

Upon release, McCartney III charted at No. 1 on both the U.K.’s Official Album Charts and Billboard‘s Top Album Sales Chart.
