Paul McCartney has re-released five of his classic Wings and solo albums as apps.

The former Beatle has put out new versions of 'Band on the Run', 'McCartney', 'McCartney II', 'RAM' and 'Wings Over America', releasing them via the Apple store as apps for the iPad. The apps include the original albums and a host of special features and extra material, including remastered audio tracks, interviews, photos, artwork and rehearsal footage and documentary videos, reports The Guardian.

The apps cost £5.49, which, The Guardian points out, is less that the remastered albums in iTunes, which range in price from £7.99 to £10.99.

Earlier this month Paul McCartney resumed his Out There tour, after taking off almost two months following a virus. The former Beatle played Times Union Centre in Albany, New York on July 5, telling the crowd "It's great to be back," and opening his three-hour long set with 'Eight Days A Week'.

In May, McCartney was taken ill and hospitalised in Tokyo, Japan. He subsequently postponed a series of shows in Lubbock, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Nashville and Louisville on his 'Out There' tour, which have now been rearranged for October.
