The official video for Paul McCartney's new song "Queenie Eye" has debuted online and, as expected, it's quite the star-studded affair. The clip was shot entirely in London's Abbey Road Studios' Studio 2, where The Beatles recorded much of their classic music. The video begins with McCartney chatting with producer Paul Epworth in a control room before he heads down some stairs into the studio, where he sits down at a piano.
As he begins to perform the song, Johnny Depp appears in front of the piano and is seen bopping his head along to the song while listening to an iPod. Soon, the room begins to fill up with more and more celebrities -- each enjoying the song in his or her own way -- although McCartney doesn't appear to see them.
Among the many other stars featured in the clip are Meryl Streep, Sean Penn, Kate Moss, Tracey Ullman, Jude Law, Jeremy Irons, Robbie Williams and Star Trek actors Chris Pine and Alice Eve. The camera occasionally cuts to show Sir Paul all alone at the piano, while in the next instant the room again is filled with famous revelers.
As the song comes to an end, McCartney again is seen by himself at the piano. He asks Epworth if the take was OK and then heads back up the stairs while whistling.
The video was directed by Simon Aboud, who's married to Paul's daughter Mary.
A behind-the-scenes video also has been posted online that includes brief interviews with McCartney and some of the celebs featured in the "Queenie Eye" clip. In the short film, McCartney explains the origins of the song's title.
"'Queenie Eye' came from a street game we used to play in Liverpool when I was a kid," he reveals. "There'd be someone at the front and they'd throw a ball over their head and one of us would catch it and then you'd hide it and that person [who'd thrown the ball] would turn around and have to discover who got the ball."
"Queenie Eye" is one of the tracks on McCartney's just-released album, New.
