Paul McCartney appears to be teasing something with St. Vincent, Beck, Josh Homme and a number of other artists.
This afternoon (March 10) the Beatles legend took to Instagram to share a short video clip that sees handfuls of multi-coloured dice rolled into different positions. In addition to the number three, the dice also feature the names of various artists.
The names listed include St. Vincent, Beck, Josh Homme, Anderson .Paak, Ed O’Brien, Damon Albarn, Phoebe Bridgers and Blood Orange. Some of the aforementioned artists also shared a similar clip on their own Instagram pages.

NME has reached out to representatives for Paul McCartney for comment.
McCartney’s last album was December’s ‘McCartney III’. In a four-star review, NME‘s Mark Beaumont called it “a stellar return to his three-decade-spanning series”.
He added: “If future archaeologists take this three-album series as a significant marker of his solo half-century, they’ll conclude that Paul McCartney never stopped liberating.”
Last month, McCartney announced a career-spanning book about his life through 154 songs from his back catalogue.
‘The Lyrics’, which is due for release on November 2, will recount the musician’s life through his earliest boyhood compositions, songs by The Beatles, Wings and from his lengthy solo career.
