There’s a massive Paul McCartney tribute album coming this November, and it features some pretty prominent names paying tribute to the 72-year-old Beatle. Among the participants on The Art of McCartney are legends like Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson and KISS, as well as newer acts like Owl City and the Airborne Toxic Event.

Our first taste of the comp, officially out November 17, comes from the Cure, who have teamed up with Macca’s son James McCartney for a rendition of 1967 chart-topper “Hello Goodbye.” Watch video of the cover below — it’s pretty faithful.

There are 34 tracks in total on the Art of McCartney, and Slicing Up Eyeballs reports that a “deluxe box set of the project also includes a Robert Smith solo cover of the Wings song ‘C Moon’ (and Ian McCulloch covering The Beatles’ ‘For No One’).”

Sounds like a good stocking stuffer for the holidays.
