It will go out during presenter Lauren Laverne's morning programme and feature alongside sets from Polica (October 14), Goldfrapp (15), Manic Street Preachers (17) and Sigur Ros (17).
The title track of McCartney's album has just been added to the 6 Music B list, while is also an addition to the Radio 2 A list.
Laverne said: “The 6 Music Live at Maida Vale sessions are always a highlight for me. A line-up of this calibre and range is one you’ll only find on 6 Music. Roll on October!”
Radio 2 and 6 Music head of music Jeff Smith said: 6 Music Live at Maida Vale has come of age in 2013. And to have such a diverse line-up including the world's most loved singer songwriter is a dream come true, especially for the lucky listeners who will also be able to watch Paul McCartney perform live.”
