Beck remixes Paul McCartney and Hyperreal Digital turn back the clock to give us a Young Paul doing his thing.
Paul McCartney has unveiled a stunning music video for his latest single.
The film for 'Find My Way' (feat. Beck), was co-produced by Hyperreal Digital, who have used their tech knowhow to make a "hyper-realistic digital avatar" of the young Paul McCartney singing his brand new track.
"The technology to de-age talent and have them perform in creative environments like this is now fully-realized, even with one of the most recognised faces in the world," said Hyperreal's CEO Remington Scott.
Gold's Hall of Fame: Paul McCartney
The video was directed by Andrew Donoho and choreographed by Phil Tayag and shows the Young Paul singing and dancing his way through the song, with a twist at the end.
'Find My Way' (feat. Beck) is the opening track on this year's McCartney II Imagined album, a reworking/remix project of McCartney III.
Other artists on the album include Blur's Damon Albarn, Phoebe Bridgers, Blood Orange, Radiohead's Ed O'Brien (as EOB), St Vincent and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.
Released last December, McCartney III was the spiritual successor to the ex-Beatle's solo debut McCartney (1970) and the experimental McCartney II (1980).
Like both those albums, McCartney III featured Paul on all instruments.
2021 is proving to be a bumper year for McCartney and Beatles releases.
On November 2, Paul releases The Lyrics – a collection of all his song words from 1956 to the present.
And later that month, Peter Jackson's six-hour The Beatles: Get Back mini-series will air on November 25, 26 and 27 on Disney+.
