Paul McCartney

Album Notes

Released in October 1983 and featuring songs initially recorded during sessions for the Tug of War album, Pipes of Peace continued Paul's rich vein of song writing form and included two massive hits, the Michael Jackson duet, Say Say Say, and the title track. The collaboration with Michael Jackson – then the biggest star on the planet thanks to the success of the Thriller album – also extended to another track, the breezy The Man. Lyrically, the album features Paul's thoughts on love, peace and the future, centred around the symbol of the pipes of peace. In 1993 the album was remastered and reissued as part of The Paul McCartney Collection series to include the hit, We All Stand Together from the Rupert the Bear project, as well as two other previously unreleased songs.
