The creator of the puppetry for War Horse have developed a life-sized robot to star in the new Paul McCartney video ‘Appreciate’.
‘Appreciate’ is the third single lifted from McCartney’s 16th solo album ‘New’.
The video is set 1000 years in the future and features robot Newman visiting the Human Museum where he comes across the McCartney display. McCartney, complete with signature bass guitar, comes to life and starts playing ‘Appreciate’.
“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.”
Paul McCartney will start his Japanese tour tonight (May 17) in Tokyo. Newman will join him on stage.
