The 10th release in the multiple-Grammy Award-winning Paul McCartney Archive Collection has been confirmed: On March 24, 2017, Paul's 1989 international #1 album, Flowers in the Dirt, will be the latest classic solo work to get the special treatment across a multi-format reissue.
One of the most critically acclaimed albums of the eighties, nominated for both BRIT and Grammy Awards, Flowers in the Dirt saw McCartney team up with Elvis Costello to co-write a third of the album (My Brave Face, You Want Her Too, Don't Be Careless Love and That Day is Done) as well as boasting production credits from producers such as Mitchell Froom, Trevor Horn, David Foster, Steve Lipson, Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney himself. Pink Floyd guitar legend David Gilmour makes an appearance on “We Got Married” and George Martin's string arrangement on “Put It There” is amongst the many album highlights.
In addition to its wealth of audio and video content, exclusive features of the Deluxe Edition include a 32-page notebook of Paul's handwritten lyrics and notes, a catalogue for Linda McCartney's 1989 Flowers in the Dirt photo exhibition, a 64 page photobook featuring the music videos for "This One," and a stunning, custom-created 112-page book telling the complete story of the album through exclusive in-depth interviews with Paul, Elvis Costello and other key contributors. Along with expanded track-by-track information, the book contains album and single artwork as well as previously unpublished photographs by Linda McCartney.
