Paul McCartney shared a special version of his collaboration with Michael Jackson.
Jackson and McCartney teamed up in 1983 for “The Girl Is Mine” off Jackson’s Thriller album and again on “Say, Say, Say,” from McCartney’s Pipes of Peace record.
To honor McCartney’s decades-long career in music, he re-issued Tug of War and Pipes of Peace, and the latter includes a new version of his collaboration with Michael with never-before-heard vocals and swapped cuts.
A new video shot by Ryan Heffington (Sia’s “Chandelier) emerges on McCartney’s Facebook page today (Oct. 6). It’s a dance party in black & white with kids who do their best to duplicate his moves and swagger anyway, but probably too young to remember Jackson’s impact.

Here’s the original version of “Say, Say, Say”:
