The record, which helped create some advance buzz for the announcement of the Paul's upcoming best-of collection, Pure McCartney, was released with Paul's approval, Billboard reports.
Teej: I don't think anyone had thought that this white label pre-release would sell out so quickly and start seeing copies being sold a week after release for more than 280 pounds on Discogs and Ebay. Phonica's London store's phone was ringing off the hook like crazy for copies, and it went to No. 1 on their charts overnight. All of that got picked up first by i-D magazine, and made it all the way to the UK tabloids who speculated that Kanye West might be behind it. It has certainly been a laugh for us to watch all the speculation floating around, but I am happy now that the cat is out of the bag. I really have to give credit to Paul for taking a chance with us on this, but there is no doubt that this has all come together because of our collective and absolute love and dedication to music.
