Paul McCartney's "Slidin'" Gets Remixed by Radiohead's Ed O'Brien
The track appears on the upcoming 'McCartney III Imagined'
Published Apr 07, 2021Paul McCartney is back showing off his McCartney III Imagined, this time unloading a new redo by Radiohead's Ed O'Brien.
As EOB, O'Brien has had a go at McCartney's "Slidin'," with the Radiohead player getting a bit of extra help from producer Paul Epworth.
"I really liked ['Slidin"], and so I said to Paul Epworth, would you fancy getting stuck in?" O'Brien told BBC Radio 6. "He was really up for it. It was great. A moment of light in the darkness of the winter that's just been. We had a lot of fun. Got into [McCartney's] vocals and added some chaos, some guitar — my reference point was 'Helter Skelter.' Ramp up the intensity!"
The rework has arrived via a new visualizer, and you can check that out below.
McCartney III Imagined will arrive on April 16 via Capitol. The album — a remake of McCartney III — features the likes of St. Vincent, Josh Homme, Phoebe Bridgers, Massive Attack's 3D, Damon Albarn, Anderson .Paak, Beck, Khruangbin and Blood Orange.
