Paul McCartney is spreading a message of positivity in his quirky new music video for “Who Cares”. The songs is the latest single from the ex-Beatles’ most recent solo album, Egypt Station.
“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,” – McCartney said in a statement.
The video features actress Emma Stone (La La Land, Birdman) as well as McCartney himself in the role of Dr. Lorenz, a “behavioural hypnotist meteorologist”.

Egypt Station was released in September. It debuted at #1 on the US Billboard 200 chart, making it McCartney’s first #1 album in the U.S. since 1982’s Tug of War.
In 2019, McCartney will head out on the U.S. leg of his Freshen Up tour, with dates in New Orleans, San Diego, Phoenix, Los Angeles and more.
