Paul McCartney Releases Celebrity-Studded “Queenie Eye” Video

Just 10 days after his critically-acclaimed album New dropped in the UK, Amagansett rock legend Paul McCartney has released a star-studded video for his song “Queenie Eye.”

Filmed at London’s Abbey Road recording studio in early October, the video shows McCartney recording the track in what he believes to be an empty Studio 2, but the room becomes full of friends and V.I.P.s as the song progresses—unbeknownst to the musician, who remains oblivious.

The “Queenie Eye” video was directed by Simon Aboud and is loaded with celebrity cameos. Among the actors, models and other talented people who appear, each reacting to the music in his or her own way: Johnny DeppLily Cole, Star Trek actors Chris Pine and Alice Eve, Tracey Ullman, Jeremy Irons, designer Tom Ford, Meryl Streep, Sean Penn, Jude Law, Kate Moss and more.

New is McCartney’s first record of all new solo material in six years, since he released Memory Almost Full in 2007. It’s already getting rave reviews and the album’s sound is being compared to McCartney’s Beatles songs. “Queenie Eye” certainly demonstrates the resemblance.
