Former Beatle, Paul McCartney unveiled on April 13 three videos and two original compositions at a Hollywood-style event at the store owned by his daughter, Stella - a designer of high fashion women's clothing. 'My Valentine' is one of the two original compositions that make up his latest album that features standard classics that happen to be among McCartney's favourites.
The three videos feature 'My Valentine', sung by McCartney: one features Johnny Depp, who is probably best known for his roles in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movie franchise, while the other stars Natalie Portman. The third video combines the Hollywood pair's contributions into one video.
Depp plays a guitar in his video and recorded the solo on the track. Portman, who starred in McCartney's 'Dance Tonight' video in 2007, mimes along to the song in her video while using sign language to accompany the words. 'My Valentine' is a sweet and melancholy tune, and perhaps a little reminiscent of McCartney's 'Ram' album of the 1970s, which was recently re-released.
The screening, which was held at the Stella McCartney store, was attended by Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and Chris Martin of Coldplay, along with other stars such as Woody Harrelson, Orlando Bloom, Zooey Deschanel and Amy Smart.
McCartney's album is called 'Kisses On The Bottom', even while the former Beatle spurned any hint of suggestiveness about the title. Said the Liverpudlian, "I like mischief. It's good for the soul, it's always a good idea - if only because people think it's a bad idea," he told BBC Radio 2 earlier this year.
