Paul McCartney dances with a robot in 'Appreciate' video


Paul McCartney may have partnered with his biggest collaborator yet — in physical size, that is.

The Beatles legend stars opposite an oversized robot named Newman in the music video for “Appreciate,” a track off the pop star’s album New, released last year. In the clip, McCartney is an exhibit at The Museum of Man, where Newman is on patrol. When the singer comes to life, Newman pulls him into his reality, where other exhibits become animated, thanks to the sweet sounds of Macca.

“I woke up one morning with an image in my head of me standing with a large robot,” McCartney said in a statement. “I thought it might be something that could be used for the cover of my album New, but instead the idea turned out to be for my music video for ‘Appreciate.’ Together with the people who had done the puppetry for the worldwide hit War Horse, we developed the robot who became Newman.”

Daft Punk share the songs that shaped them with EW: Hear the duo's playlist here


This is an expanded version of a story that appears in Entertainment Weekly‘s Summer Music Preview issue, on stands now.

Years before EDM became an acronym even your parents knew, Daft Punk were the byword of cool in electronic music. Now they’re back with their first new studio album in seven years, Random Access Memories (out physically today; read our review here), and a slick Pharrell Williams-aided single, “Get Lucky,” that may just be the song of the summer.

So we got the duo on the phone and asked them about the music that’s inspired them throughout the years. Paris natives Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo — who are so tight, they prefer to answer questions together — shared the songs that make them cry, crush out, and (flash)dance below; scroll to the bottom for a Spotify playlist off all their picks:
