The Beatle finally debuts one of the strangest songs from his solo catalogue.

Last night Paul McCartney played ‘Temporary Secretary’ live for the first time at The O2 in London. The kooky, seemingly krautrock-inspired track is taken from his synth-driven 1980 album McCartney II, and though it flopped when it was released as a single, the accidental proto-techno tune has become a cult favourite.

Check out the fan footage of ‘Temporary Secretary’ and hear the original underneath. McCartney has been digging out several rarely heard oldies for this tour, including the live debut of the Beatles’ ‘Another Girl’, and last night Dave Grohl also joined McCartney on stage for ‘I Saw Her Standing There’.

In other McCartney news, his contribution to Kanye West’s ‘All Day’ was recently discovered to date from a 1999 interview with Michael Parkinson. [via Rolling Stone]
