Paul McCartney performs in front of close to 50,000 fans during his Out There tour at Candlestick Park in San Francisco on Aug. 14.
Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, Billy Joel and more than two dozen other artists will sing their favorite Paul McCartney songs on
The Art of Paul McCartney, a massive tribute project due this fall.
On the album, due Nov. 18, Dylan sings the early Beatles song Things We Said Today, Robinson covers So Bad from 1983\'s Pipes of Peace and Joel plays piano man on two early solo songs Maybe I\'m Amazed and Live and Let Die. Kiss will cover the Wings\' medley Venus and Mars/Rock Show.
Rolling Stone premiered a version of the Beatles\' 1967 hit Hello Goodbye recorded by The Cure and McCartney\'s son, James, on Tuesday.
The project got its start 11 years ago when producer Ralph Sall got McCartney\'s approval to start work on it and record several songs with the singer\'s backing band. Brian Wilson came on board first, choosing to sing Wanderlust from McCartney\'s 1982 album Tug of War. The album also features covers by artists ranging from B.B. King to Def Leppard to Owl City.
The standard version of The Art of McCartney will contain 34 tracks, but a deluxe version will boast eight additional covers, a DVD, a hardbound book and, in some cases, more. The packages are available for pre-order.
