Maccartney and Corden for a Carpool Karaoke
The video comes after McCartney took a trip down memory lane alongside Late Late Show host James Corden for a Carpool Karaoke. The iconic Beatles singer visited his old home and favourite pub where he gave visitors a surprise impromptu performance of Beatles classics.
The pair then drove to Penny Lane, which inspired the song of the same name based on his experiences of growing up in the area, and Sir Paul got out to autograph the famous street sign. Throughout their journey, he pointed out notable landmarks from his youth, including a church where he was once in the choir.
