Paul McCartney and Lady Gaga were together in Capitol Studios, Los Angeles, to record a track for the soundtrack of the upcoming animated film “High In The Clouds”, an adaptation of the eponym children book co-written by McCartney.
I’m getting involved in an animated feature film. That’s my focus at the moment. It’s the same kind of thing, and again I get to write to some sort of specification in my own mind. One of the first things in this film is a female rock star who runs this animal city – it sounds crazy – so I have to write her number. It had to be one in which she gets everyone in her power, so it needed to be a good soul number. I had fun doing that and I’ll be recording that next year with a female singer.Paul McCartney – interview with Lewis Corner, November 2014
On February 4, 2015, Lady Gaga published two photos of her with Paul McCartney, hinting at a future collaboration.
In the studio was producer Greg Kurstin, who would produce Paul McCartney’s 2018 album “Egypt Station“. As he remembers in 2018, this was the first session they did together. From Rolling Stone, July 3, 2018:
How did you first meet Paul McCartney?
We did a session together for this film. I’m still not sure if it’s happening or not, but we spent one day live in the studio with a full band, a brass section, background singers and everything for this song that Paul had written for an animated film. I don’t know what the status of it is, but I think it was a trial for Paul and me. I think he wanted to see what it was like working with me. That was the first time.
Do you know the name of this movie?
I don’t, to be honest. It’s an animated movie based on a book, but I don’t know exactly what. I really didn’t get that much information on it.
How long ago did that happen?
At least three years ago, if not more. My timeline skills are horrible, but it was at least a year before I began working on the album.Greg Kurstin – From Rolling Stone, July 3, 2018
