Check out new remix of recent Paul McCartney track “Slidin'” by Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien

Capitol Records/UMeA remix of the new Paul McCartney song “Slidin’,” created by Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien, has been released as a digital download and via streaming services.

The updated recording will appear on McCartney III Imagined, the upcoming compilation featuring new, collaborative interpretations of songs off the Beatles legend’s 2020 solo album, McCartney III.

O’Brien made his “Slidin'” remix under his EOB solo moniker, which he launched in 2019. For his remix, EOB maintains the indie-rock vibe of Sir Paul’s original version, but speeds up the track and adds more distortion.

In addition, a “visualizer” video for the remix has debuted at McCartney’s official YouTube channel. The stop-motion clip features a pair of dice turned to the number three — a nod to the McCartney III and McCartney III Imagined cover art — moving through various scenarios, including riding on a skateboard, bouncing onto cotton clouds and sliding across a guitar.

The EOB version of “Slidin'” is the third McCartney III Imagined cut to be released, following Beck‘s chilled-out remix of “Find My Way” and singer/rapper/songwriter Dominic Fike modern R&B-flavored rendition of the acoustic ballad “The Kiss of Venus.”

McCartney III Imagined will be released digitally on April 16, with CD and vinyl versions due out on July 23. The album also includes collaborations with Blur‘s Damon Albarn, Queens of the Stone Age‘s Josh Homme, Anderson .Paak, St. Vincent, Idris Elba, Blood Orange, Phoebe Bridgers, Khraungbin, and Massive Attack‘s 3D RDN.

Allergies! How bout you?!

WOW! This dry weather has kicked my ass with allergies. I know I know…we never seem to be 100 percent satisfied. It seems it’s always a trade off. Best thing I ever did years ago was get to an allergist, go on shot therapy and try to feel better. I was getting sinus infections every…read more »
