A 23-year-old experimental track by Sir Paul McCartney is to be re-released on a compilation album of pioneering dance music.

Temporary Secretary, which first appeared on his 1980 LP McCartney II, is to feature on Secret History, an album of groundbreaking 80s electronic dance tracks, reports

It was the third single to be released from McCartney II album and is also his only single to be released on 12" only.

Only 25,000 copies were pressed, and original copies now exchange hands on auction websites such as Ebay for upwards of £50.

McCartney said: "People have asked me what were my influences at the time I made the track, and really it was just the arrival of synthesizers and sequencers. The concept for the track came from an Alfred Marks Temp. Employment Bureau advert I saw in the paper.

"I'm really chuffed at the renewed interest in a track I made 23 years ago. Is this a musical direction I'll be exploring again in the future? Who Knows!"

Secret History is released on January 12 next year.
