The BEATLES have dropped a new video for “Here Comes the Sun,” In honor of ABBEY ROAD, which turned 50 on Thursday.
It features vintage photos of the group floating throughout Abbey Road Studios’ Studio Two, where they cut the now iconic album. Photographs by Linda McCartney – the images fly past instruments, rising up above Ringo’s drum kit to form a gigantic, golden sun.
The clip shifts to animation of the Fab Four’s feet crossing the famous road, with a white bird watching over them. It concludes with footage of the band’s final photo session on May 4th, 1969, nearly a year before they announced their breakup in 1970. The group stands in England’s Tittenhurst Park surrounded by wildflowers, on the same grounds as John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s home Berkshire.
The video features the new stereo mix of “Here Comes the Sun” from the ABBEY ROAD 50TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE, out September 27th. It was remixed by producer Giles Martin, son of esteemed Beatles producer George Martin. It consists of a remix of all 17 tracks as well as 23 intimate session recordings and demos. It’s available in a variety of packages, including a deluxe box set with a hardcover book and a blu-ray of the album in stereo, 5.1 surround sound and Dolby Atmos.
