Listen: Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien remixes Paul McCartney’s ‘Slidin’

'McCartney III Imagined' drops on April 16th

Paul McCartney is gearing up for the release of McCartney III Imagined on April 16th, which will feature a whole slew of artists adding their own twists to tracks from last year’s McCartney III. Today, we’ve gotten a remix of “Slidin'” from Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien.

“I really liked [‘Slidin”], and so I said to Paul Epworth, would you fancy getting stuck in?” O’Brien explains of the track on BBC Radio 6 Music. “He was really up for it. It was great. A moment of light in the darkness of the winter that’s just been. We had a lot of fun. Got into [McCartney’s] vocals and added some chaos, some guitar – my reference point was ‘Helter Skelter.’ Ramp up the intensity!”

Listen to O’Brien’s remix of “Slidin'” below.
 

 
McCartney III Imagined is set to also feature remixes from Damon Albarn, Blood Orange, Phoebe Bridgers, Josh Homme, Khruangbin, Massive Attack’s 3D RDN, Anderson .Paak, St. Vincent, and a previously released remix from Beck.
