Get back in time: Hi-tech revival for Macca’s moptop as the former Beatle, 79, sheds his greying hair using de-ageing technology in new music video

Yesterday, all his tresses seemed so far from grey. Now it looks as if they’re here to stay. Well, at least it does in these shots from Sir Paul McCartney’s latest video.

The Ex-Beatle, 79, has shed his greying hair and slightly wrinkled visage to appear as a young man again – complete with his trademark moptop – with a little help from de-ageing technology.

Sir Paul appears as a sprightly youngster as he dances in a hotel corridor in the video for his new song Find My Way, featuring American musician Beck.

‘Step back in time and on to the dancefloor,’ Sir Paul wrote on Twitter as he promoted the new video.

The video was co-produced by Hyperreal Digital, which specialises in the creation of hyper-realistic digital avatars, similar to so-called Deepfake technology.

‘The technology to de-age talent and have them perform in creative environments like this is now fully-realised, even with one of the most recognised faces in the world,’ said Hyperreal’s chief executive Remington Scott.

At the end of the video, Beck appears to remove a mask of Sir Paul, suggesting that he may have been the one dancing the entire time.

The song is from the remix album McCartney III Imagined.
