When you’re Paul McCartney, you can do basically anything, and he’s enlisted a true all-star line-up of musicians for his new album.

The music legend has announced a new album featuring a line-up of star musicians who will cover, remix or reinterpret tracks from his 2020 album McCartney III. McCartney III was the singer’s 18th solo album and a continuation of his albums McCartney (1970) and McCartney II (1980). Way to keep us waiting, Paul. It turned out to be worth the wait though, earning him his first U.K. number one solo album since 1989 and making it to number two on the U.S. Charts.

The album was a product of COVID-19 lockdown, recorded in early 2020 at McCartney’s studio in Sussex, England. Like previous McCartney albums, he was a one-man band, performing all the instruments himself.

This upcoming album is definitely not a solo effort though. And when you’re a former Beatle, you can collaborate with whomever you want: St. Vincent, Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, Beck, Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien, Damon AlbarnBlood Orange, Khruangbin, and Anderson Paak are just some of the stellar artists helping out on the album.

He’s also cleverly tapped the inescapable guitar-destroyer superstar Phoebe Bridgers for a duet. Even Idris bloody Elba features. So far we have Dominic Fike’s version of ‘The Kiss of Venus’, which you can check out below.
