Paul McCartney continues to use Billboard in USA and NME in the UK as vehicles to promote the upcoming Archives editions by feeding them samples from the releases.
This time, it's "Ebony & Ivory" which gets a Soundcloud preview, on Billboard here and on NME here.
Billboard describes this remix of "Ebony & Ivory" like this: "additional vocals and a different mix that brings out the bass a bit more".

Meanwhile, Best Buy - the US chain stores are annnouncing special editions of the upcoming albums containing tote bags.

Is it me, or does that mix, while sounding very wide and brilliant, sort of sags?

This is also available on Macca's official website and YouTube channel.
I like it!

Seems to be very loud and and a lot of instruments get buried in distortion. Same with Take it Away. Hope it's just fucked up promo version.
