CAPITOL

A Paul McCartney covers album will be curated by McCartney himself

A list of known artists will reimagine his 'McCartney III' album

Paul McCartney has been a busy man recently. After the announcement of his 900-page lyric-based memoir (to come in Autumn 2021), the music legend has another ace up his sleeve. 

It is a new, reimagined version of his last release, McCartney III, set for release in April 2021. Macca has enlisted quite a number of indie rock known names like St. Vincent, Phoebe Bridgers, Damon Albarn, Beck and Josh Homme. But the list of collaborators actually extends to Khruangbin, 3D of Massive Attack, Ed O’Brien of Radiohead, Dominic Fike, Blood Orange, Anderson .Paak, and even actor Idris Elba.  Each artist will cover one track.

The release of McCartney III Imagined in April will be a digital one through Capitol Records, while the physical version is due sometime in the summer.

The original version of the album was released in December 2020 and it was his 18th solo release. McCartney handled the songwriting, performing, recording, and producing entirely by himself.

Here’s the McCartney III Imagined tracklist (the Idris Elba track will only appear on the physical release):

  1. Find My Way (feat. Beck)  
  2. The Kiss of Venus (Dominic Fike)  
  3. Pretty Boys (feat. Khruangbin)  
  4. Women And Wives (St. Vincent Remix)  
  5. Deep Down (Blood Orange Remix)  
  6. Seize The Day (feat. Phoebe Bridgers)
