I dag er det 50 år siden The Beatles ga ut «Abbey Road». Ikke bare musikken fenget millioner også coverbildet er klistret i pannebrasken. -Det har ikke tall på hvor mange venner og kolleger som har laget en omage til coverbildet når de har vært i Abbey Road». Det blir selvfølgelig en jublieumsutgave av albumet, men også en splitter ny video til den tidløse og remastret klassikeren «Here Comes The Sun».
The «Here Comes The Sun» music video welcomes the viewer into Abbey Road Studios’ Studio Two, where The Beatles famously recorded most of Abbey Road, to experience a unique and moving sunrise above the band’s instruments and gear. Working closely with Apple Corps Ltd., the video is directed by Trunk Animation’s director team Alasdair + Jock (Alasdair Brotherston and Jock Mooney) and produced by Trunk’s Maria Manton. The video’s sun centerpiece was filmed as it was meticulously crafted on-set in Abbey Road’s Studio Two. The video features photos from the Apple Corps archive, and photos and footage shot by Linda McCartney supplied by Paul McCartney.
The Beatles will celebrate Abbey Road with a suite of beautifully presented Anniversary Edition packages to be released this Friday, September 27 by Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe. The album’s 17 tracks are newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo, 5.1 surround, and Dolby Atmos, accompanied by 23 session recordings and demos, most of which are previously unreleased. The new music video for “Here Comes The Sun” features the song’s new stereo mix.
