Paul McCartney has premiered his new music video on Apple Music, expect it to appear on YouTube and elsewhere soon. The song, "Who Cares?" from his 2018 album "Egypt Station" stars McCartney as a psychiatrist and hypnotist, and Emma Stone as his patient.

Read a bit more over at Variety.

Update: Shortly after we posted this, the video appeared on YouTube. Shot on 65mm Kodak Film with Panavision Cameras, 'Who Cares' features a message of universal positivity rendered in vivid colourful detail.

"My hope is that if there are kids being bullied — and there are… Maybe by listening to this song and watching this video, they might just think it’s not as bad… that it’s the kind of thing you can just stand up to and laugh off and get through.” - Paul

When Paul McCartney announced the European leg of his "Freshen Up" tour, I didn't even think about it. I had booked a three week family holiday in USA months earlier, so I knew I wouldn't be home when he was due to play Copenhagen, Denmark, which would be the closest to where I live. I happily accepted this fate, even though I would indeed have liked to see and hear him with the new horn section. When the tickets went on sale, it was quickly sold out - within minutes in Denmark, Liverpool and London, which were the ones I monitored.
A large contingency from Norway travelled to Denmark for his gig there, and a couple of them even attended the soundcheck. I kept tabs on this, because even as I was vacationing, I was involved in putting together the "Norwegian Wood" Beatles magazine, which I am editor-in-chief for. After three weeks, it was time to go home, and we landed in Norway on Saturday, December 8.

Assuming my duties as a blogger was not on the agenda for a few days, I had too much to do elsewhere. Meanwhile, McCartney and his gang descended upon Liverpool on December 12th, and through Facebook and friends in Liverpool, I was kept up-to-date about the concert. It was Quarryman drummer Colin Hanton's 80th birthday on the day Paul played in Liverpool, and the two old band mates met up again backstage, thanks to the organisational skills of Freda Kelly. Upon playing "In Spite of All The Danger", which featured Colin on the original recording, Paul mentioned him during the introduction at the show. Very nice. I don't think they had seen each other for the past sixty years. There was some anticipation now that Paul was in Liverpool, was he going to show up at Roag Best's new Beatles museum? I don't think he did.

Anyway, come Friday the 14th, I got word that a friend suddenly had a spare ticket for McCartney's show in London on Sunday the 16th, just two days later. His mate could no longer accompany him, due to sudden illness in the family. A couple of phone calls later, I had a flight booked and Sunday morning I was on my way to London!

I did actually have three Norwegian friends to meet in London, all of whom I had been to previous McCartney concerts with. In fact, I had recently made a list of all the times I had seen McCartney play live since I first saw him on Live Aid in 1985, and the count stopped at 29. This was going to be my Macca gig no. 30!

Two creative employees at London Transport have been using their service announcement boards in funny ways lately, and this is what the board at the North Greenwich station looked like at the night of the concert. #allontheboard

Arriving in the rain to London's O2 Arena

I knew we didn't have very good tickets, we were all going to sit in the nosebleeds of the 20 000 capacity arena, I heard it was the biggest indoor venue in the world. Still, we counted ourselves lucky to be there, and there were rumours about a special guest appearing on stage tonight. We were all hoping that it was going to be Ringo. This because the last time we all were in the O2 at a Christmas McCartney gig back in 2009, we had spotted Ringo in the audience - and one of us actually shook his hand!

Arriving at the gig, we noticed Sir Peter Blake being wheeled in, as one of Sir Paul's guests.

Sir Peter Blake arrived at the same time as us.

We took a look at the merchandise, but we only bought a couple of programmes, I didn't bother to get anything. My collection is already bigger than I'm able to keep on hand.

The programme was £25
More merchandise

A big merchandise stall just by the entrance had the biggest selection - I think they even had the green vinyl "Egypt Station" - but also the biggest queue, so none of us bothered.

So we found our seats, and this is what the view was from where we were sitting:

The O2 is a huge venue

The people on the stage looked really tiny from as far back as we were, and even the big screens were partly obscured by the stage lights rig. Very early on in the show, we heard rumours that Ringo had been spotted in the audience. Good news travel just as fast as bad news.

In the audience: Ringo Starr and Rami Malek, who starred as Freddie Mercury in the film Bohemian Rhapsody

The gig was great, and fortunately, in concert Paul's voice sounds deceptively good, quite better than when one reviews the recordings of it. The addition of a horn section was very successful and added a great new dimension to the songs they were featured in, like "Letting Go" and "Got To Get You Into My Life". Now how about adding a string quartet, Paul? The Wings songs went down really well with the audience, as always in London. Lots of Londoners were Wings fans back in the seventies. There was a generally good feeling in the audience anyway, even the new songs were cheered and applauded. I streamed some songs on Facebook from my iPhone.

Of course, Paul's stage banter was the same as always, with the same old stories, but at least he acknowledged it this time, as he told us he had met a Japanese fan who had attended 121 McCartney concerts. So he did mention that the stories he told were mainly meant for those who hadn't seen him in concert before.

There must have been a few of those, because after the rousing singalong of "Hey Jude" quite a number of people made their way to the exits, even during the song. Of course, we knew better, and were still hoping for that "special guest". By now of course, you will all know that the special guests this evening turned out to be Ron Wood and Ringo. After a nice version of "Wonderful Christmastime", featuring the Capitol Children's Choir, Paul introduced "Ron Wood from the Rolling Stones" to big cheers, but when he introduced Ringo, the whole audience got on their feet and gave the biggest round of applauds of the evening. I filmed and streamed the whole thing on Facebook, and also posted it on The Daily Beatle Facebook page, but as my view was from way back in the arena, I have found another nice video for you, edited from several sources.

And here's Paul's own, abbreviated video:

It was really touching to see the two remaining famous Beatles friends back on stage together, something I had personally witnessed just once before, at the Concert For George.

 Beatles' White Album Auction: Ringo's First Mono Pressing Goes for $790,000 [£624,542.40p]

UPDATE: On Dec. 5, copy 0000001 of The Beatles aka The White Album sold for $790,000 at Julien's auction, a new world record for a vinyl record at an auction. Early estimates for the item placed its value between $40k-60k, an estimate collector demand easily surpassed. 

Dec. 4 Story: Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach have been auctioning off a trove of their personal belongings at Julien's auction house this month, and the ultimate Beatles collector's item just hit six figures.

Bidding for Ringo's copy of The Beatles (1968) aka The White Album is up to $100,000 after 11 bids.

Why so much for this particular copy? 
Simple: This is the first numbered U.K. mono copy of the White Album ever pressed – it's # 0000001. Each of the Beatles received the first four pressings of their sprawling double LP in the late '60s, and it was recently revealed that Starr got the first one, which he stored in a London vault for 35 years. "The top load sleeve is in near mint minus condition and would be near mint if not for the bumped upper right front gatefold corner, but it is overall very clean and fresh with very minor abrasions," reads the description on Julien's.

Additionally enticing is that this is the mono version of the album. Many Beatlemaniacs say mono is the preferred way to listen to the Fab Four, as the band was usually present for the mono mixing of their albums but not involved in the stereo mixing process.
The While Album, in particular, differs in its mono version from the more commonly available stereo version. Ringo's "Don't Pass Me By" appears in sped-up form on the mono version, with additional fiddle playing. Also, the mono version of "Helter Skelter" is noticeably shorter; when the song fades out and then returns on the stereo version, it simply fades out and ends on the mono version. A lot of the sound effects (pig noises, airplane noise) are different on the mono version, too.
Elsewhere in the history of absurdly expensive rare records, an early acetate of the Velvet Underground's first album once went for more than $150,000 at an auction, although the bid turned out to be fraudulent. It later sold for $25,000.
If you want to spend more than most people's yearly income on a record, head here.
