George Harrison might have received a one night show to celebrate his legacy, but Paul McCartney is getting a special album.

It was announced that a new project titled, The Art of McCartney will be released to honor one of the guys who helped shape rock and pop music.

The record will feature classic tracks such as “Maybe I’m Amazed,” “My Love,” “The Long and Winding Road,” “Helter Skleter,” “Live and Let Die,” personal favorite, “Eleanor Rigby” and many more. All tracks that will be featured on the record will include backing by McCartney’s longtime band.

Of course with such a project, it’s only natural to gather a long list of contributors including Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, The Cute, The Who’s Roger Daltrey, Heart, Owl City, Smokey Robinson, The Airbourne Toxic Event, Alice Cooper, and many more
