Check out an early version 'My Brave Face'...
George Martin x Sir Paul McCartney

Sir Paul McCartney has shared an early version of his Elvis Costello collaboration 'My Brave Face'.

The legendary songwriter is due to re-issue 'Flowers In The Dirt' on March 24th, the 10th instalment of his Archive Collection.

Amongst the extras are a clutch of early demos, including a few Elvis Costello collaborations.

Sir Paul McCartney has shared an early version of 'My Brave Face', commenting:

“I was looking for someone to work with, trying to think of something imaginative to do and one day my manager said ‘do you fancy writing with Elvis Costello? It might be a great thing’. I said ‘yeah’. He (Elvis) came down to my studio and we sat opposite each other with our guitars because I had said to him early on that this is how I’d written with John, with me being left handed and him being right handed, it was almost like looking in a mirror. We did virtually what John and I did which was just make up a song a day.”
