James McCartney To Release Two CD Set

James McCartney's new The Complete EP Collection is set to be released on November 22 exclusively as a two-cd set.

The CDs gather McCartney's two recent, critically acclaimed digital EPs 'Available Light' and 'Close at Hand,' with five previously unreleased bonus tracks.

All told, the set features fourteen McCartney originals, plus a deeply felt cover of Neil Young's "Old Man," and a rousing version of Carl Perkins' "Your True Love."

Rollingstone.com premiered the CD's opening track "Angel" today, hailing McCartney's "strong pop hooks." Listen to the track here

The Complete EP Collection is, by turns, whimsical and reflective, sharp-witted and affectionate. Full of smart, engaging pop songwriting—including the intimate "Wings of a Lightest Weight," an expression of a son's feelings of love for his mother—the collection was produced by David Kahne (The Strokes, Regina Spektor) and James' father Paul McCartney. The set was recorded at Abbey Road and Hog Hill Mill Studios in England, as well as SeeSquared and Avatar Studios in New York. James plays many of the instruments himself, including guitar, bass, piano and mandolin.
