'McCartney III' is the former Beatle's 18th solo album - which landed last Friday - and features 11 new songs.
The 78-year-old McCartney plays all instruments and sings all the vocals, just like his two previous eponymous solo albums, 1970's McCartney and McCartney II, released in 1980.
Directed by famed filmmaker Roman Coppola, the video shows McCartney playing every instrument on the song – including guitar, drums and piano – in a collage of footage taken by an impressive 46 cameras.
The album was released last Friday (December 18) after it was delayed from December 11.
“I did the Rolling Stone cover with Taylor Swift, and she just emailed me recently, and she said, ‘I wasn’t telling anyone, but I’ve got another album,’” McCartney told Howard Stern. “And she said, ‘So I was going to put it out on my birthday.’
“And then she said, ‘But I found out you were going to put yours out on the 10th. So I moved it to the 18th.’ And then she found out we were coming out on the 18th so she moved back to the 10th. So I mean, you know, people do keep out of each other’s way. It’s a nice thing to do.”
McCarthy's old bandmate in the Beatles, Ringo Starr, also has a quarantine record.
Starr announced a five-song project titled Zoom In that features contributions from McCartney, Dave Grohl and Finneas.
The 80-year-old unveiled 'Here's To The Nights' on Tuesday, a track written with songwriter Diane Warren.
