A long-in-the-works Paul McCartney tribute album finally arrives this November, and the first track to debut from The Art of McCartney is a rather faithful cover of The Beatles’ “Hello Goodbye” performed by The Cure with Sir Paul’s son James McCartney assisting on keyboards — the full performance of which you can see below (via The Guardian).
The Cure’s involvement in the project was first announced in 2011, and the standard-edition 34-song tribute finally arrives Nov. 17. The record also features covers performed by Bob Dylan, Chrissie Hynde, KISS, Perry Farrell, Brian Wilson, Roger Daltrey and more (see full tracklist).
A deluxe box set of the project also includes a Robert Smith solo cover of the Wings song “C Moon” (and Ian McCulloch covering The Beatles’ “For No One”).
Below, check out The Cure’s new Beatles cover:
