“We were writing songs that were memorable because we had to remember them!” Hulu has unveiled the trailer for a music history series called McCartney 3, 2, 1, formerly known as Paul McCartney x Rick Rubin when it was announced last year (first teaser here). This “documentary event series” is a B&W + color presentation split into six episodes to watch on Hulu. Paul McCartney sits down for a rare, in-depth, one on one with legendary producer Rick Rubin to discuss his groundbreaking work with The Beatles, the emblematic 70s arena rock of Wings and his 50 years and counting as a solo artist. In this six-episode series that explores music and creativity in a unique and revelatory manner, join Paul and Rick for an intimate conversation about the songwriting, influences, and personal relationships that informed the iconic songs that have served as the soundtracks of our lives. Looks fantastic! I dig the interview style and the old photos.
Here’s the official trailer for Zachary Heinzerling’s series McCartney 3, 2, 1, direct from Hulu’s YouTube:
