Just released is Beck‘s video for his remix of Paul McCartney‘s “Find A Way.”

The track, which is featured on the McCartney III Reimagined collection, spotlights Beck dancing his way through an at times psychedelic hotel hallway, in full deep-fake McCartney face using Beatles-era photos and footage.

During a recent chat with Apple Music, Paul McCartney explained how the pandemic played a definitive role in getting the McCartney III material realized saying, “I kind of made it a daily practice and started finishing off songs that I’d meant to finish last year, but never had time for. And then I wrote one, and then I come in (sic) and did it. So, it’s a collection of ways of doin’ it. Suddenly, there was a thing that we never had before. I mean, there was AIDS, and there was SARS, and Avian Flu — but all these things seemed to happen to other people. And then suddenly — it’s happening to everyone, and everyone I knew, and everyone in the world, y’know? So it was, it was quite a shock.”

Last month, McCartney unveiled his video for “Slidin'” — one of the heavier tracks from last year’s McCartney III collection. 

Jambands.com reported, “The Jack McCoy-directed video was created in association Surfrider Foundation Australia in observance of International Surfing Day, and features footage of professional surfer Craig Anderson. “

“Slidin’,” which had started life as a soundcheck jam between “Macca” and his band, is the only song on McCartney III to not be completely performed by the former-Beatle. Longtime sidemen, guitarist Rusty Anderson and drummer Abe Laboriel, Jr., are both featured on the track.

McCartney III, peaked at Number Two on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album earned him the distinction of being the first artist to have a new album in the top two chart positions in each of the last six decades. McCartney III also went on to top both Billboard’s Top Album Sales and Top Rock Albums charts. The collection hit Number One in England, marking his first chart-topping album in his homeland since 1989’s Flowers In The Dirt.
