Paul McCartney may be working on an upcoming project with St. Vincent, Khruangbin, Ed O’Brien and other surprising musicians.
McCartney teased the project in a short Instagram video yesterday (10 March). The clip showed multi-coloured dice inscribed with the names of different artists: St. Vincent, Damon Albarn, Beck, Khruangbin, Josh Homme, Ed O’Brien, Phoebe Bridgers, Blood Orange, Anderson .Paak, Dominic Fike and 3D from Gorillaz.
Blood Orange and Anderson .Paak are established names in R&B, while Fike is a guitar-playing newcomer whose music bridges emo, hip-hop and rock.
The other visible die faces showed the number three, which fans believe marks a connection to the Beatle’s latest solo album McCartney III.

A theory from the Beatlefan Facebook page suggests that a cover album of McCartney III – reportedly titled IIImagined – is on the way. A post shared on the Facebook page on Tuesday (9 March) even included an alleged track list, which can be seen below:
- Long Tailed Winter Bird by Damon Albarn
- Find My Way by Beck
- Pretty Boys by Khruangbin
- Women And Wives by St. Vincent
- Lavatory Lil by Josh Homme
- Deep Deep Feeling by 3D
- Slidin’ by Ed O’Brien
- The Kiss Of Venus by Dominic Fike
- Seize The Day by Phoebe Bridgers
- Deep Down by Blood Orange
- Winter Bird/When Winter Comes by Anderson .Paak
In Guitar.com‘s review of McCartney III, we said: “It’s Paul McCartney back in 1970, liberated from the trauma The Beatles had become, and making music in his own company purely for the unbridled love of it.”
