Paul McCartney's trip that started with his recent Egypt Station will continue in a limited deluxe Egypt Station Traveller's Edition that was announced Thursday (Feb. 14) for release on Capitol Records.

The set will retail for $360.
One of the main features will be three unreleased tracks: “Frank Sinatra's Party,” “Sixty Second Street” and an extended version of “Who Cares.” Also included are four live album tracks taken from McCartney's performances at Abbey Road Studios, the Cavern Club, Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts and Grand Central Station in New York City. Additionally, the package will have a deluxe 180G vinyl album, an Egypt Station Concertina CD and an Egypt Station Blue Cassette. Buyers will also get a set of HD audio tracks.
