MPL and the Concord Music Group have announced two more landmark installments in the multiple Grammy-winning Paul McCartney Archive Collection. Paul's early ‘80s back-to-back classics Tug of War and Pipes of Peace have received exclusive 2015 remixes — Pipes of Peace includes the classic collaboration with Michael Jackson "Say Say Say."

Released in 1982, Tug of War was Paul's first album following the break-up of Wings and his third solo LP overall. Hailed upon its release as "exquisitely crafted" by The New York Times and a "masterpiece" by Rolling Stone, Tug of War went to No. 1 in no less than nine countries. Tug of War yielded such classic tracks as Paul's No. 1 duet with Stevie Wonder "Ebony and Ivory," the Top 10 single "Take It Away," and of course "Here Today," the conversation Paul never had with the late John Lennon that remains a staple of Paul's live set to this day.

As with the Grammy-winning Band on the Run and Wings Over America Archive editions, Paul personally supervised all aspects of these releases and their various formats.
