A video for the “McCartney III” track “Find My Way“, was published on streaming platforms, the day prior to the release of the album, December 17, 2020. On the same day, lyric videos for “Pretty Boys”, “Women And Wives” and “Winter Bird / When Winter Comes” were also released.

A shriek was heard from off camera. “Hey, guys? Guys! Just keep doing your animation, O.K.?” Coppola called. The screeching stopped, then resumed. Coppola laughed. “It was really just a document of an artist at work,” he continued, referring to the McCartney video. “The only thing I was sad about was that I didn’t get to meet him in person.” The footage from the fifty-three cameras was edited into a tapestry of tightly framed squares that appear to slide and shift, tile-puzzle style, to evoke the layered nature of McCartney’s work with his instruments.

A lyric video for “Find My Way” was published a few days after.
