Sir Paul McCartney: Digitally ‘de-aged’ Beatles star has years knocked off appearance in new music video | Ents & Arts News

Sir Paul McCartney has been given the de-aging treatment in the video for his new track Find My Way.The Beatles icon, 79, has had decades dropped from his appearance in the clip, in which he dances down a hotel corridor.
The video to Macca’s new single featuring Beck has been co-produced by Hyperreal Digital, which creates “hyper-realistic” digital avatars – similar to the technology used to make deep-fakes.

Dressed in a smart shirt and tie, a younger-looking Sir Paul energetically struts through the non-descript corridor, backed by dancers and various different scenarios and scenes.
However, at the end of the video, track collaborator Beck appears to be behind a mask of the Wings frontman – suggesting he could have been the one dancing instead of Sir Paul.
