Beck Reworks Paul McCartney’s ‘Find My Way’
McCartney III Imagined — containing reworkings of McCartney’s 2020 LP McCartney III — sees an impressive list of artists curated by Sir Paul himself including Damon Albarn of Gorillaz, Phoebe Bridgers, St. Vincent, Anderson .Paak and more. Macca announced the album earlier this month and previewed it with Dominic Fike‘s version of “The Kiss Of Venus” and now follows with Beck’s “Find My Way.”
Beck recalled a fond memory of Paul he used for inspiration on his rendition of “Find My Way.” Read his words below:
I remember hanging out with Paul and his wife Nancy several years ago and Nancy mentioned that she wanted to go out dancing before calling it a night. We ended up at some club in West Hollywood and I remember noticing that Paul and Nancy were TEARING IT UP – really enjoying themselves more than anyone else on the dance floor. Last year when he asked me to remix this track, I remembered that night and wanted to try to recapture that amazing spirit I felt while watching him on the dance floor…sort of my little tribute to Paul “in his groove.” When I then heard the falsetto vocal in Paul’s original track I wanted to lean further into something really loose and funky – I pulled out my Hofner (because of course) and put down a few bass lines…and everything came to life from there. The best part of the entire experience, though, came just after I’d turned in the remix, when Paul called to tell me he’d been dancing in his kitchen to the track all week.
