Sir Paul McCartney sure knows how to draw a crowd to Abbey Road, and a famous one at that!
The music legend enlisted the help of A-listers Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Jude Law, Alice Eve, Tracey Ullman and more for his Queenie Eye music video, and we have a full behind-the-scenes look at the making of the project. Also featured in the video is Johnny Depp and his ex-girlfriend, 39-year-old supermodel Kate Moss, though it's unclear as to whether the former couple shot their scenes at the same time.
"Being in that room -- especially being in that room with Paul -- it's quite a rush," said 50-year-old Depp, a notable musician in his own right, said of working on the 71-year-old Beatles star's video. "That's the room that changed the world."
The setting for the video, Abbey Road, is the same studio where McCartney recorded many songs with The Beatles, including their first single, Love Me Do.
"It's a home away from home for me just because of all the memories," said McCartney, who is sure to have walked away with a few more stories after his recent star-studded video shoot. "I didn't quite know who would be in it and people started to show up."
He quickly added, "It's turning Abbey Road into a little party zone, which is fine by me."
"I could've been a waitress," said 53-year-old comedian Tracey Ullman, who feverishly Instagrammed photos of herself in the famed studio. "But no, I'm in Abbey Road."
The song is featured on New, out now, which marks McCartney's first album of new solo material in six years.
