From paulmccartney.com, April 11, 2014:
We would like you to pick a line or two from Paul’s song ‘Save Us’ (or pick every line if you want!) and take a photo of yourself with it. You could write the words on a piece of paper; make something with the words on; do something on your computer – remember, the more creative your photo, the more chance you have of being included! We will pick our favourites and put them into a new video for the song.
The lyrics are provided below (plus a few extra lines for when Paul isn’t singing).
We will post your ‘Save Us’ video here on PaulMcCartney.com soon so remember to keep checking back!
WHAT TO DO:
1. Pick as many lines as you wish from the lyrics below – including (Guitar Riff), (Instrumental) and (End) – and take a photo of yourself with it (one line per photo, please!)
2. Post your photo on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #whatsnewPaul
3. Please post your photo by midday (UK time) Tuesday 22nd April
The selected photos will be used in a new fan video for Paul’s track ‘Save Us’. Your photos should be either be landscape or square. No portrait photos, please!
From paulmccartney.com, June 20, 2014:
Today PaulMcCartney.com publishes a new fan lyric video for Paul’s song ‘Save Us’.
We recently asked you to pick a line from Paul’s song ‘Save Us’ then represent that lyric in a creative way. We received thousands of entries! Though we expected a big response we were still astonished by the volume, quality and originality of your photos. Thank you!
After carefully selecting our favourites (this was no easy task!) we put them all together to create the first Paul McCartney fan lyric video.
We loved seeing how Paul’s lyrics were visually interpreted in so many different ways. Paul has previously said:
“I do love that thing about songs – when you release them they become ‘people’s property’; they’re not mine anymore. If someone puts a meaning on one of my songs that suits them, then that’s great, I can only be complimented by that.”
We love that you made ‘Save Us’ your own with your photos!
Paul was so impressed with your creativity he has asked that we put our thinking hats on and come up with some more exciting ways to involve you in one of his next projects. So if your photo doesn’t appear this time, remember there will be more chances in the future!
On behalf of Paul, we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who sent in photos. We can’t wait to see what we do next…
