A new song from Sir Paul McCartney is featured in a new animated film titled Ethel and Ernest. Titled “In the Blink of An Eye,” Macca’s new tune plays over the end credits, according to the Telegraph.
The film is an animated adaptation of a 1998 book from Raymond Briggs, and features voice work from Jim Broadbent and Brenda Blethyn.
More about the film, via the Telegraph:
Jim Broadbent voices Briggs’s father, milkman Ernest, while Brenda Blethyn plays his mother Ethel, who worked as a lady’s maid before meeting her future husband in 1928. The film tells the story of the couple, from their marriage to the birth of their son (Briggs, played by Luke Treadaway), to their experiences during the Second World War and post-war years.
Billboard notes that McCartney’s new tune is available on international version of the iTunes store, though it is not yet available for preview or full listening in the United States.
