Paul McCartney has unveiled Ed O’Brien’s rendition of his track Slidin’, which first appeared on his 2020 album, McCartney III.

The Radiohead guitarist's riotous remix, which opts for an up-tempo feel, reimagines the track as a high-octane rocker, super-charging the huge bed of thrash-y electric guitars, punchy power chord stabs and adding a layer of ethereal synths that weave their way through the length of the song.
