In case you were wondering if Paul McCartney, Beatle, has still got it, there’s this video of him just a-messin’ around with his new song, “New.” The video was posted on McCartney’s YouTube page, with the following explanation:
“Last month, whilst getting ready to go on stage at Regina, Paul was caught on camera performing an impromptu version of ‘New’. This quickly turned into an acoustic performance when Paul was joined by the rest of his band for a run-through the song.” Whether that was actually an “impromptu” performance or not (are there just hi-def cameras that follow Macca around before every show?) it’s still charming as all get up in a very Ram-y kind of way.
