Paul McCartney is getting the royal treatment from his fellow musicians in a new covers compilation that spans the former Beatle’s time with the Fab Four and Wings, along with his solo career.

As Rolling Stone points out, the 34-track album (42 tracks if you get the bonus edition) is filled with well-known songwriters including Bob Dylan covering The Beatles’ “Things We Said Today,” Smokey Robinson singing the McCartney solo track “So Bad,” Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees doing The Beatles’ “When I’m 64,” and Billy Joel, taking on two songs, “Maybe I’m Amazed” and “Live and Let Die.”
