Paul McCartney - "Early Days" (video)

by Brice Ezell

8 July 2014

Sir Paul McCartney has released another video from his most recent studio effort, New, the folksy "Early Days".
 

Though Paul McCartney‘s legacy is primarily defined by perfecting the pop formula with his cohorts in the Beatles, in recent years, with LPs like Memory Almost Full and last year’s New, he has continued to try to push himself into other musical directions. (He also tried his hand at ballet, but some things are best left forgotten).
  
“Early Days”, a rootsy cut from “New”, is a bit of an odd one for Sir Paul, who by the nature of his musical history never comes off as a folk troubadour. The song’s just-released video, which features a random cameo from occasional guitarist Johnny Depp, heightens the strange image of McCartney as a folk singer. The black and white footage, however, is beautifully rendered by Los Angeles-based director Vincent Haycock.
