Hulu has announced an original documentary series McCartney 3,2,1, a six-episode “music event” that features “intimate and revealing examinations of musical history from two living legends, Paul McCartney and producer Rick Rubin.” All six episodes will premiere on July 16th, 2021, on Hulu. It comes from Endeavor Content.

“Never before have fans had the opportunity to hear Paul McCartney share, in such expansive, celebratory detail, the experience of creating his life’s work – more than 50 years of culture-defining music,” said Craig Erwich, president, Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment, in the May 17th announcement. “To be an observer as Paul and Rick Rubin deconstruct how some of the biggest hits in music history came to be is truly enlightening. It is an honour that Paul chose to return to Hulu to share this one-of-a-kind series.”

In the series,McCartney sits down for a rare in-depth one-on-one with Rubin to discuss his ground breaking work with The Beatles, the emblematic 1970s arena rock of Wings and his 50-plus years as a solo artist. The series “explores music and creativity in a unique and revelatory manner, and gives a front-row seat to Paul and Rick in an intimate conversation about the song writing, influences, and personal relationships that informed the iconic songs.”

McCartney first teased the series on December. 16th two days before the release of his recent solo album, McCartney III. At that time, McCartney released the trailer on YouTube, then identified as Paul McCartney x Rick Rubin – A Documentary Series Event. McCartney’s website noted, “Keep your eyes peeled in 2021 for more information.”

The roughly one-and-a-half-minute teaser, shot entirely in black-and-white, features the musician and the acclaimed producer discussing a number of Beatles songs, accompanied by archival footage. At various times the sounds of “Lovely Rita,” “Paperback Writer,” “Come Together,” and others, are heard.

“It feels as if the bass is doing what an orchestra would do,” says Rubin in the clip. “You can actually control the band with the bass,” responds McCartney, as he demonstrates his point.

Towards the end, following the sound of the orchestra in “Live and Let Die,” McCartney says “that was one of the greatest music moments of my life,” although it’s not entirely clear from the clip’s editing whether he was, indeed, referring to the 1973 Wings single.

Rubin is an eight-time Grammy Award winner and has produced or collaborated with such acts as Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Johnny Cash, the Beastie Boys, Run-DMC, Mick Jagger, and Adele, among many others.
