Rock ‘n’ Roll legend Paul McCartney is all geared up for his new album ‘McCartney III’ on Friday, December 18. But guess what, apart from his new album, the rock veteran has another treat for his global fans in the form of a new documentary. Yes, the 78-year-old has just announced a six-part documentary series with top record producer Rick Rubin on his official Twitter account.

The rock idol shared a trailer for his new project and captioned the post as, “Paul McCartney x Rick Rubin. A forthcoming documentary event. Coming soon.”



Thanks to his global fame, this is not the first time the former Beatles musician will be the main focus of a documentary. Along with his group in his early days, McCartney has seen and done it all.  Speaking of his album, ‘McCartney III’ will be the rock icon’s 18th solo album and it comes after a gap of two years when he had released his album titled ‘Egypt Station’ in 2018. Originally, the newly-announced album is a follow-up to his two LP’s i.e. 1970s self-titled solo debut and 1980's ‘McCartney II.’

Release date

The newly-announced documentary is being labeled as a ‘documentary series event’ and as of now, there are no details on the release date. We might have to wait for a while before the legendary musician sheds light on the same. MEAWW will keep you posted. 


According to the website Deadline, the six-part documentary series will take the viewers behind-the-scenes of McCartney’s unbelievable musical journey. It will also zoom in on his first guitar and composition to the legendary and prolific success of The Beatles. The new documentary will also mark the first time ever when the original masters left Abbey Road.


The yet-untitled documentary will feature Rick Rubin and Paul McCartney. The rest of the cast is yet to be announced. Since the new project will highlight the musician’s journey, we can expect a few other famous appearances as well.
