Sir Paul McCartney embraced a laid back holiday vibe as he was pictured on the sun-soaked beach of St Barts this week.
The 78-year-old Beatles legend has jetted off to the Caribbean resort with his wife Nancy Shevell for some New Year’s celebrations, a tradition he has kept up for a number of years.
Sir Paul cut a casual figure as he went shirtless and wore his trademark floppy locks pulled back into a hipster man-bun, while Nancy opted for some laid-back glamour in a flattering pink sundress and straw hat.
The duo, who have been married nine years, looked very loved up as they were spotted kissing and cuddling.
Sir Paul has been embracing a more natural look these days after previously dyeing his natural grey hair an auburn shade.
And as he approaches his 80th birthday, the musician is not showing any signs of slowing down.
The star released his 18th solo studio album this month – McCartney III – which took the coveted Christmas Number 1 album spot.
The record became Sir Paul’s first chart-topping hit in 31 years, following his 1989 release Flowers In The Dirt.
The achievement was celebrated by Sir Paul’s fans – including Piers Morgan who took to Twitter to congratulate the star and also apologise for a past meeting.
Good Morning Britain host Piers shared a very fresh-faced picture with Sir Paul and wrote: “Congrats to Sir @paulmccartney on achieving his first solo No1 since 1989 on the UK Album chart and the US Billboard Album Sales chart.
“Incredible achievement at the age of 78.”
Proving his enduring popularity, Sir Paul had been booked to play Glastonbury Festival this year – which was sadly postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Organiser Emily Eavis said earlier this month she is hoping the festival can still go ahead next year despite the ‘huge uncertainty’ surrounding live music.
“We’re doing everything we can on our end to plan and prepare,” she told the BBC, “but I think we’re still quite a long way from being able to say we’re confident 2021 will go ahead.”
It comes after Emily said the festival had lost ‘millions’ by having to cancel in 2020 while her father Michael Eavis warned the festival would go ‘bankrupt’ if it was forced to skip another year.
Emily said that 2020 headliners Sir Paul, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar will all be invited back at the next opportunity.
