Featuring additional vocals and a different mix that brings out the bass a bit more, this version comes from the reissue boasting a remix of the entire 'Tug of War' album.

Twelve years after the Beatles split and three years after Wings' final album, Tug of War was released by Paul McCartney — working with producer George Martin, as well as Stevie Wonder on two tracks — in April 1982.

One of the most mature, confident efforts of his solo career, Tug of War became McCartney's first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 in six years and produced one of the biggest hits of his solo career, the chart-topping Stevie Wonder duet "Ebony and Ivory."

That hit brought McCartney and Wonder the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 for seven weeks, and today, Billboard is excited to premiere the 2015 remix of "Ebony and Ivory" from the upcoming Tug of War reissue, out Oct. 2.

Featuring additional vocals and a different mix that brings out the bass a bit more, this version comes from the reissue boasting a remix of the entire Tug of War album.
