From Phonica Records:
Now, official release with sleeve!
A huge amount of hype on those limited 12” test pressings we had in last month which sold out in hours. This is in no small part due to Paul McCartney being one of rock’s most iconic figures. From his frontman status within The Beatles to his solo outfit Wings, he trail blazed the 70s with a string of hits. Originally a B side, the luminous ‘Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five’ was first released in 1973 and took Timo Maas until 2009 to discover it. Amazed at how fresh the record sounded, he teamed up with musical cohort James Teej to contemporise this classic sound and bring a modern edge into it, now set for official release on Virgin Records Germany on May 13th. The original ‘Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five’ was the closing track on the 1973 album ‘Band on the Run’ and found critical acclaim for Paul McCartney & Wings (the solo outfit the Beatles member founded with his wife Linda) through references to George Orwell’s 1984, yet it also tells an unlikely love story through its lyrics. Industry heavyweights Timo Maas & James Teej elevate the track.
It has also been released on various streaming platforms – Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, iTunes & Apple Music.
