Sir Paul McCartney has unveiled plans to release a collector’s edition of his latest album, New , on October 28th. The three-disc set promises an array of bonus material, including unreleased songs and live recordings, as well as a documentary on the making of the album.

The set includes two previously unheard outtakes from the album sessions — “Hell to Pay” and “Demons Dance” — along with “Struggle”, which was previously only available in Japan. The bonus material also features four live recordings taken from McCartney’s performance at the Tokyo Dome in 2013.

Disc three contains a new documentary directed by Don Letts. Entitled Something New, the film chronicles the making of New with commentary from producers Paul Epworth, Ethan Johns, Giles Martin, and Mark Ronson. The DVD also boasts seven music videos, including “Early Days”, “Appreciate”, and the celebrity-filled bonanza “Queenie Eye”, along with clips from his promotional stops at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Below, revisit Macca’s “impromptu” performance of “New”.
