Paul McCartney has produced a video for another song off his latest album, New. This one is for “Appreciate”” and it shows him interacting with a robot in a museum.
He says, “I woke up one morning with an image in my head of me standing with a large robot. I thought it might be something that could be used for the cover of New, but instead the idea turned out to be for my music video for ‘Appreciate.’ Together with the people who had done the puppetry for the worldwide hit War Horse, we developed the robot who became Newman.” Newman is seen patrolling a museum, where McCartney is one of the displays. Macca then comes to life and is seen dancing and playing guitars along with Newman.
Last week, when he landed in Japan for a few shows, Macca was greeted by Newman at the airport. Newman, which stands for New-man, will reportedly join McCartney on stage Wednesday when his tour of Japan is expected to begin. He postponed the first two shows on Saturday and Sunday due to a virus.
