It can’t just be another birthday for Sir Paul McCartney, can it?
The newly turned 76-year-old Beatle decided to give back to his fans on his birthday this year with a teaser for a possible new project via Instagram on Monday afternoon (June 18).
The short video shows a 2-D Egyptian pyramid surrounded by palm trees with the text “Egypt Station” scribbled above it. An ominous soundscape of a train station accompanies the short clip as well. The post is the latest in a series of aesthetically similar photos that McCartney has posted within the last day.
McCartney hashtagged #PaulMcCartney and #EgyptStation in the clip’s description, while fans continue to scramble for answers in the comments. One user thoughtfully wrote, “WHAT OMG IM SCREAMING WHAT IS GOING ON ALSO HAPPY BIRTHDAY.”
What is going on? Also, happy birthday.
