On Wednesday, the once and forever Beatles posted a cryptic video clip on his Instagram account of handfuls of multi-coloured dice rolled into different positions - while also revealing blink-and-you'll-miss-'em name checks of various artists.
St. Vincent, Beck, Josh Homme, Anderson .Paak, Ed O’Brien of Radiohead, Damon Albarn, Phoebe Bridgers and Blood Orange are among the acts mentioned.
Beatlefan Magazine claimed that the post hinted at a covers album called ‘IIImagined’ and the artwork will be made up of 12 dice, similar to the motif used on last year's McCartney album.
McCartney has since confirmed the new album, tweeting, "Personally curated by Paul, #ThreeImagined features an assortment of fellow artists and friends, each reimagining their favourite #McCartneyIII tracks in their own signature styles."
