Ahead of the III Imagined’s arrival, McCartney has shared the album’s “The Kiss of Venus” cover by singer Dominic Fike.

Beck (“Find My Way”), Khruangbin (“Pretty Boys”), and Bridgers (“Seize the Day”) implant themselves on McCartney’s own III tracks, while St. Vincent, Blood Orange, EOB, .Paak, 3d RDN, and Albarn provide remixes for the LP. Homme (“Lavatory Lil”) and Pike deliver their own covers. Additionally, the physical version of III Imagined features a bonus remix, actor/DJ Idris Elba’s spin on “Long Tailed Winter Bird.”

McCartney III, the singer’s quarantine-recorded third installment in his series of adventurous self-titled LPs, was released in December 2020. In November 2021, McCartney will publish his mammoth, two-volume The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present.
