Johnny Depp and Kate Moss are among a host of celebrity faces who appear in the video for Paul McCartney‘s ‘Queenie Eye’.
Meryl Streep, Gary Barlow and a live studio audience also feature in the promo which was apparently shot at Abbey Road Studios earlier this year. The video is for the second track to be taken from his new album, titled ‘New’.
A source told the Daily Record: “There were a whole host of celebrities taking part. It was a really mixed bunch. Meryl Streep and Gary Barlow were in the studio, and there was an audience on set. But the big talking point was Kate and Johnny.
“They really try to avoid one another in public because there have been raw emotions in the past – but neither could say no to Macca. They only have little roles, but it’s the first time they’re appearing on screen together since the split.”
On Thursday (October 10), Paul McCartney performed a surprise concert in New York’s Times Square. Rolling Stone reports that the singer and his crew arrived in a convoy of yellow taxi cabs at 1pm local time, performing four tracks from his forthcoming album ‘New’ on a bare-bones stage constructed on a flatbed truck. “I’ll be putting a little hat out here later – we’re basically busking,” he joked at one point. The performance lasted just 15 minutes, with McCartney telling the crowd: “Mr Andy Warhol predicted I’d get 15 minutes of fame. This is it.” The four songs played were recent single ‘New’, ‘Save Us’, ‘Everybody Out There’ and ‘Queenie Eye’.
McCartney’s ‘New’ is released on October 14. It features production from Mark Ronson, Paul Epworth and Ethan Johns, who has previously worked with Kings Of Leon and Laura Marling. Long-term McCartney collaborator Giles Martin also features on the album’s production credits
