Macca signs up Depp for new music video

Paul McCartney has joined up with Hollywood star Johnny Depp for his new video, but fans of the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor could be forgiven for not spotting him on film.

The star has a blink-and-you'll miss him appearance as a blues musician in the video for the former Beatle's new single, Early Days.

Video director Vincent Haycock said it was inspired by the Beatles' love for early American rock 'n' roll and blues music and ends with Macca jamming with a group of musicians including Depp.

He said: "Paul's scene was incredibly fun to create. It was just him, some blues players and Johnny Depp jamming on set all day. Patti Smith also turned up on set and hung out, which made the crew very happy. It was one of my favourite days ever."

It is not the first time Depp has appeared in a video for one of Macca songs.
