Paul McCartney unveils Egypt Station ‘Traveller’s Edition’ box set

Super Deluxe Edition of Egypt Station • Pre-order open tomorrow

It’s strangely in keeping with its theme of travel and trains (at least for those of us in the UK) that Paul McCartney‘s Egypt Station box set arrives so late. The fact that a box set was in production was clear from day one, but details of this ‘traveller’s edition’ super deluxe have only just been announced and the set itself won’t be shipping until May, eight months after the album was released.
