Paul McCartney has announced an album of cover versions by contemporary artists who have recorded songs from his December 2020 release, McCartney III. The new album, McCartney III Imagined, features performances, personally curated by the legend, by such acts as Beck, St. Vincent and Phoebe Bridgers. It will be released digitally on April 16 with a CD and 2-LP set to follow on July 23.

Listen to several of the performances below.

McCartney III, recorded in the isolation of “Rockdown,” as McCartney called it, and released on December 18, debuted on Britain’s Official Charts at #1, his first to accomplish that since 1989’s Flowers in the Dirt. It debuted at #2 in the U.S., behind Taylor Swift’s Evermore, following an elaborate teaser campaign via his social media platforms.

McCartney first teased McCartney III Imagined on March 10 with a silent video that utilized colorful editions of the dice that he used on the cover of McCartney III.

That same day, many of the artists involved also teased the imminent announcement.
