The items included in this collection will be stored in a two-piece, four-walled FSC-approved Redwood pine and Birch Ply wooden crate, made in the UK. Alongside the launch of the physical box set, The 7″ Singles will be made available digitally, across all major streaming platforms.

All of the tracks featured in the legendary musician’s new box set were cut and remastered at Abbey Road Studios. The 7” Singles collection is priced at $829.99. As stated by Paul McCartney in a press release, “I hope the songs in this box set bring back fun memories for you too. They do for me, and there will be more to come…”
