Sir Paul McCartney has released his star-studded 'McCartney III Imagined’ collection, featuring the likes of Idris Elba and Damon Albarn.
The former Beatles legend originally released his 18th solo album, ‘McCartney III’, in December, and he joined forces with a host of musical talents to re-create each of the songs on the record.
Each of the tracks on the new album have been personally curated by Paul, and include complete covers, remixes, and featured performances.
Blur and Gorillaz frontman Damon remixed the original album’s opening track ‘Long Tailed Winter Bird’, whilst actor and DJ Idris put his own spin on the same song, which is only available to those who purchase a physical copy of the collection.
Queens of the Stone Age rocker Josh Homme recorded a cover of ‘Lavatory Lil’, whilst Beck features on a new version of ‘Find My Way’, and Phoebe Bridgers lends her voice to ‘Seize The Day’.
Dominic Fike’s cover of ‘The Kiss of Venus’ was released in advance digitally.
