The legendary Sir Paul McCartney is being honored yet again, this time with a massive tribute album full of covers from other hugely influential artists.

The Art of Paul McCartney is an upcoming compilation of covers of Macca's work throughout his career, including Beatles, Wings, and solo songs. Artists like Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Roger Daltry, and Willie Nelson -- already superstars in their own right -- lend their talents to the record, along with dozens of other musicians.

The first taste we get of the record is The Cure's absolutely spot-on take on "Hello Goodbye." Although Robert Smith's take on the classic song is impressive, James McCartney steals the show with stellar keyboard playing and pitch-perfect harmonies. The studio video shows the band playing off each other, with charming chemistry and effortless musicianship. Watch the clip above and check out the record's full tracklist in the dropdown menu.

A press release details more of what we can look forward to on the album:

The Art Of McCartney is a long awaited and very special project celebrating one of the most universally acclaimed songwriters of all time, Sir Paul McCartney.
