As previously reported, the collection was personally curated by McCartney and includes covers or remixes of the McCartney III tracks by Beck, Blur‘s Damon Albarn, Queens of the Stone Age‘s Josh Homme, Radiohead‘s Ed O’Brien, Anderson .Paak, St. Vincent, Blood Orange, Phoebe Bridgers, Khruangbin, Massive Attack‘s 3D RDN, and Dominic Fike.
To accompany each of the updated tracks, a stop-motion “visualizer” video was created; you can watch all of them now at McCartney’s YouTube channel.
