Paul McCartney is back in release-mode, with the reissue of Wings’ ‘70s albums Venus and Mars and At The Speed Of Sound due out next month.
Among the newly unearthed works and bonus content is a previously unreleased take of album track “Beware My Love.” What’s particularly noteworthy is the percussion on the cut is handled by none other than the great, late Led Zeppelin late drummer John Bonham.
The track was hinted at when the Speed of Sound reissue track list was published in July. Though the hidden gem had stayed under wraps until Sir Paul shared it via Twitter’s new audio card when he took part in a Q&A session on the social networking platform. Click here to listen.

“Beware My Love” wasn’t the only time McCartney and Bonham’s paths crossed. The Zeppelin drummer played on two tracks from Wings’ final album, 1979’s Back to the Egg.
During the Twitter Q&A session, McCartney shared all manner of details on his life. Fans learned he has no tattoos (“Not even on my ass”), he sings in the shower (“Singing in the Rain,” “It’s Raining Men” or “Waterfalls!”) and he’s loving the new Foo Fighters track “Something From Nothing” and Sia’s “Chandelier.”
Venus and Mars (1975) and At The Speed Of Sound (1976) are the fourth and fifth albums released by Wings — and both peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The reissues will drop Nov. 3 in the U.K. and Nov. 4 in the U.S.
