Elsewhere, Paul McCartney recently shared a trippy new video for his latest single, ‘Find My Way’, featuring Beck.

Taken from the Beatles legend’s most recent album, ‘McCartney III: Imagined’ – a reworking of last year’s ‘McCartney III’ – the ‘Find My Way’ visuals sees a digitally de-aged McCartney dance the halls of a hotel before being transported to various other locations.

Beck recently rescheduled his forthcoming UK tour to 2022 and added several new dates. The American singer-songwriter was set to head out on a UK and European tour this summer, but he was forced to postpone the dates due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
