Paul McCartney has shared a trippy new video for his latest single, “Find My Way”, featuring Beck.

Taken from the Beatles legend’s most recent album, McCartney III: Imagined – a reworking of last year’s McCartney III – the “Find My Way” visuals sees a digitally de-aged McCartney dance the halls of a hotel before being transported to various other locations.

The colourful, disco-inspired video – which has a big reveal at the end – was directed by Andrew Donoho (Janelle Monae, The Strokes) and co-produced with Hyperreal Digital, which specialises in the creation of hyper-realistic digital avatars.

“The technology to de-age talent and have them perform in creative environments like this is now fully-realised, even with one of the most recognised faces in the world,” Hyperreal’s CEO Remington Scott said of the technology used in the video.
