Paul McCartney has recorded a new, acoustic version of "Heart of the Country," a song from his 1971 album "Ram," for use as an animated online promotion for his late first wife Linda McCartney's frozen vegetarian food line.
The 40-second spot features a cartoon image of Linda cavorting with a variety of appreciative animals in the woods, playing accordion and presenting a veggie burger, while Paul performs the song accompanied by just acoustic guitar and accordion.
McCartney co-wrote "Heart of the Country" with Linda and released it as the B-side to the single "The Back Seat of My Car;" he also created a video for the song.
Last year's reissue "Ram -- Paul McCartney Archive Collection (Deluxe Edition)" is nominated for a pair of Grammy Awards -- Best Historical Album and Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package. The ceremony takes place February 10 in Los Angeles.
