Paul McCartney’s “immense” legacy to be celebrated with new Royal Mail stamp collection

McCartney is the third artist after David Bowie and Elton John to be honoured by the Royal Mail

Paul McCartney‘s solo music career is set to be celebrated with a new collection of stamps from the Royal Mail.

The collection, which was made in close collaboration with the Beatle, is set to be released on May 28.

Among the McCartney stamps that are set to be issued later this month are a set of eight featuring artwork from the musician’s solo LPs, including his most recent album ‘McCartney III’.

“Paul McCartney remains a vital figure at the centre of rock and pop, an artist whose legacy is immense, but whose work continues to generate popular attention and critical acclaim,” Royal Mail’s David Gold said in a statement.

“This dedicated stamp issue is a fitting tribute to one of the UK’s much loved and revered musical icons.”
