MPL and UMe have announced that the expanded 50th anniversary edition of Paul McCartney & Wings‘ iconic album, Band on the Run, will be released on February 2, 2024.

Wings’ most successful and celebrated piece of music, the multiple Grammy-winning album was originally released in December 1973.

One of the all-time great albums, Band on the Run features hits such as the title track, “Jet,” “Bluebird,” “Let Me Roll It,” “Picasso’s Last Words (Drink to Me)” and “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five.”

The 50th anniversary edition of Band on the Run will be available in a variety of formats, including the essential 1LP. The single vinyl album configuration mirrors the U.S. tracklist, which features the song “Helen Wheels” and includes a Linda McCartney Polaroid poster.

The 2LP vinyl edition features the original U.S. album, and a second LP titled “Underdubbed” Mixes Edition. The set also includes two Linda McCartney Polaroid posters.

A 2CD format will feature the original U.S. album, “underdubbed” mixes, and a double-sided fold-out Polaroid poster taken by Linda McCartney. Band on the Run (Underdubbed) will also be released digitally.

Speaking about the “underdubbed” version, Paul said, “This is Band on the Run in a way you’ve never heard before. When you are making a song and putting on additional parts, like an extra guitar, that’s an overdub. Well, this version of the album is the opposite, underdubbed.”

Band on the Run (Underdubbed) presents the album’s nine classic songs for the first time without any orchestral overdubs, available digitally.

Band on the Run will also be available in Dolby ATMOS.
