Sir Paul McCartney joins up with Hollywood star Johnny Depp for his new video but fans of the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor could be forgiven for not spotting him on film.

The star has a blink-and-you'll miss him appearance as a blues musician in the video for Sir Paul's new single Early Days.

Video director Vincent Haycock says it's inspired by the Beatles' love for early American rock 'n' roll and blues. It ends with a group of musicians jamming including Depp.

He said: 'Paul's scene was incredibly fun to create. It was just him, some blues players and Johnny Depp jamming all day.'

Sir Paul resumed touring this weekend after he had been forced to take nearly two months off due to a virus that left him in hospital.

The musician - who recently turned 72 - pulled out of shows in Japan and the US due to a mystery bug after doctors ordered him to rest.
