Beck delivered a supremely funky, electro-pop interpretation of Paul McCartney’s “Find My Way,” a song off McCartney III. The single was commissioned for McCartney III Imagined, which finds an array of artists – including St. Vincent, Josh Homme, and Phoebe Bridgers – offering their own renditions of the legendary artist’s newest material.
While McCartney’s original recording of “Find My Way” was certainly upbeat, Beck transforms the song entirely – swapping out guitars for synth-driven melodies and dropping in infectious beats.

“I remember hanging out with Paul and his wife Nancy several years ago, and Nancy mentioned that she wanted to go out dancing before calling it a night,” recalled Beck in a statement. “We ended up at some club in West Hollywood and I remember noticing that Paul and Nancy were tearing it up – really enjoying themselves more than anyone else on the dance floor. Last year, when he asked me to remix this track, I remembered that night and wanted to try to recapture that amazing spirit I felt while watching him on the dance floor … sort of my little tribute to Paul ‘in his groove.’”
