Paul McCartney's New Video Features Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, More

(Radio.com) The promotional blitz around Paul McCartney's highly acclaimed New album continued today with a new music video that he shot with (cough) a little help from his friends.

The clip for "Queenie Eye" was filmed at Abbey Road Studios earlier this month and sees him recording the track in what he thinks is an empty studio (Studio 2). As the video progresses, hijinks ensue in the form of surprising celebrity cameos including Jude Law, Meryl Streep, Tracy Ullman, Jeremy Irons, Tom Ford, Chris Pine, Alice Eve and–much to the delight of the paparazzi–former paramours Johnny Depp and Kate Moss.

The song, which is one of the four McCartney performed at his recent impromptu gig in New York's Times Square, is based on a chant he remembered from his childhood. In a statement, McCartney recalls "It came from a street game I use to play as a kid. Those kind of things always stick with you. I always liked the rhythm of the chant."

In the behind the scenes video, you can watch behind-the-scenes footage, including Paul playing the Beatles' "Lady Madonna" on the piano he originally recorded the song on. Singer/songwriter Jack Savoretti, who has also recorded at Abbey Road, says that he'd thought that Paul recorded "Rocky Raccoon" on that piano, but McCartney corrected him. McCartney also sweetly recalls being "terrified out of my wits" while recording "Love Me Do" in the same room the video is being shot in.
