OCTOBER 08: Musician Neil Young (R) performs with Sir Paul McCartney onstage during Desert Trip at The Empire Polo Club on October 8, 2016 in Indio, California. The first historic all-star collaboration of Desert Trip (the Southern California classic rock festival cheekily dubbed “Oldchella”) took place on day two, Saturday, when Paul McCartney and “really good friend” Neil Young joined forces during McCartney’s headlining set. The legends’ epic, seven-minute medley of the Beatles’ “A Day in the Life” (with Young’s distinctively trebly vocals adding another layer of melancholy to the Sgt. Pepper ballad) and the Plastic Ono Band’s “Give Peace a Chance” was actually a reprise of a duet they performed at London’s Hyde Park back in 2009.

Music stars Sir Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson are to swap vocals as a new remix and video of their duet, Say Say Say, is unveiled today - 32 years after its original release. Sir Paul’s chief engineer Steve Orchard and Mark “Spike” Stent, who has worked with Madonna, U2 and Beyonce, have remixed the latest version of the song, which features previously unheard vocals from Jackson, who died in June 2009 at the age of 50. The extended track - which is over three minutes longer than the original 1983 single - opens with Jackson rather than Sir Paul, and is featured in the re-issued edition of his Pipes Of Peace album. We rearranged the vocal sequence and inverted the original performance so that Michael opened the first verse instead of Paul, to give the song a different take to the original version.” The single’s accompanying video, which launched at 4pm on Sir Paul’s Facebook page, has been created by Ryan Heffington, who has worked with Sia and Lady Gaga.
