“We realized we were writing songs that were memorable, not because wanted them to be memorable, but because we had to remember them,” McCartney tells Rubin of the Beatles music.

While McCartney did not share any other details about the documentary event, Deadline reported that the project is “a six-part documentary series that will amount to a behind-the-scenes magical mystery tour of McCartney’s unbelievable musical journey. Rubin will be there to explore the music and musicianship of McCartney, from his first guitar and composition all the way to through the legendary and prolific success of the Beatles.”

The trailer is also laced with different takes of the Beatles’ music; Deadline adds that the documentary will mark “the first time ever that the [Beatles] original masters have left Abbey Road.”

A release date and streaming service/network home for the untitled documentary series event has not yet been revealed, but the McCartney site says, “Keep your eyes peeled in 2021 for more information.”
