VIDEO: Unreleased Demo From Latest Sir Paul Reissue

Paul McCartney is offering another peek into the upcoming deluxe reissued of his 1989 Flowers In The Dirt album with a video for the previously unreleased demo of the single "My Brave Face" that he and Elvis Costello wrote during 1987.

Paul McCartney 'My Brave Face [Original Demo]' --- The reissue of 'Flowers In The Dirt' is available from March 24th PRE-ORDER: Deluxe Edition (3CD/1DVD): Special Edition (2CD): Vinyl (2LP): LONG AWAITED 10th INSTALLMENT OF THE GRAMMY-WINNING ARCHIVE COLLECTION OUT MARCH 24 VIA MPL/Capitol/UMe DIGITAL PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE FROM TODAY - FRIDAY FEBRUARY 24 DIGITAL

The under-two-minute clip, posted on YouTube, shows McCartney and Costello in the studio, working on the song and clowning around, while the recording itself is a spare, bare-bones version of the song that showcases its Beatlesque melody and two singers' harmonies.

"My Brave Face" was the lead single from Flowers In The Dirt and peaked at No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The reissue comes out March 24 in several configurations that included rare and unreleased audio and video material, customized books and other bonuses.

McCartney will be hitting the road again in late April (27, 29 and 30) for a trio of shows in Tokyo.
