McCartney to reissue new album with concert video

Empty

Video footage from a "secret" Paul McCartney show in London this past summer will be included on a DVD that will be packaged with a reissue of his latest album next month, his Hear Music label said Wednesday.

The deluxe edition of "Memory Almost Full" will also include three additional audio tracks: "In Private," "Why So Blue," and "222," as well as music videos for the singles "Ever Present Past" and "Dance Tonight."

It goes on sale November 6 in traditional music retailers, and two days later in Starbucks-operated outlets across North America. The international release date was not known.

The live DVD portion comes from McCartney's show at London's Electric Ballroom on June 7: the new tracks "Dance Tonight," "Nod Your Head," "House of Wax" and "Only Mama Knows," as well as the Beatles' "Drive My Car."

McCartney played "last-minute" shows at small venues in London, New York and Los Angeles to promote "Memory Almost Full," his first release for Hear Music, a joint venture between Starbucks Corp. and Los Angeles-based jazz specialist Concord Music Group. It debuted at No. 3 in the United States in June, and has sold more than a million copies worldwide, Hear Music said.
