O’Brien, under his EOB Moniker, contributed a remix of the track Slidin’ to McCartney’s latest project. Entitled McCartney III: Imagined it was a star-studded remix and covers reimagining of his latest solo record.
O’Brien’s interview with McCartney will take place tonight at 8:30 PM BST. You’ll be able to tune in at his Facebook page here.
McCartney III was the Beatle’s quarantine solo record, recorded over the UK lockdown in his own studio. Announcing it back in October 2020, he explained his recording process: “I was living lockdown life on my farm with my family and I would go to my studio every day. had to do a little bit of work on some film music and that turned into the opening track. And then when it was done, I thought, ‘What will I do next?’ I had some stuff I’d worked on over the years, but sometimes time would run out and it would be left half-finished. So I started thinking about what I had.”
“Each day I’d start recording with the instrument I wrote the song on and then gradually layer it all up; it was a lot of fun,” he added. “It was about making music for yourself rather than making music that has to do a job. So, I just did stuff I fancied doing. I had no idea this would end up as an album.”
