Paul was playing live at the Olympic Stadium in Munich on the day of the album's release. Always eager to hear what you think, we went to the show and asked fans to let us know their favourite songs from the album.

Paul has made a new series of virtual reality documentaries highlighting five of the songs on Pure McCartney. This month Paul released the film for 'Early Days' where he movingly recalls how The Beatles came together. Check out the virtual reality film for 'Early Days' by clicking HERE!

Other items published this month for Pure McCartney include 40 new GIFs on Paul's GIPHY channel, a new wordsearch where we've hidden all 67 tracks from the release, additions to the 'Sticking Out Of My Back Pocket' feature highlighting some of the deep cut tracks. And if that's not enough, we also launched a new microsite, pulling together all the lyrics, photos, and other cool stuff from the album, including a new fan art competition!

Never one to wrest on his laurels, along with the release of Pure McCartney, Paul also continued his 'One On One' tour, playing shows in Spain, Germany, Czech Republic, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands and Belgium - not bad for one month!

Along with finding new ways of telling stories about his music with the virtual reality documentary series, Paul also teamed up with Facebook this month to launch their new feature: 360 photos! Throughout the month - and in the months ahead - Paul will be posting photos in 360 degrees from his shows, using the hashtag #OneOnOne360. They are a really cool way of sharing moments from Paul's shows, and easy for you to do too with just a smartphone. So if you're heading to one of Paul's shows, give it a go!
