The Beatles are continuing on their collection of reissues with the announcement of the Let It Be special edition reissue, due Oct. 15 via Apple Corps/ Capitol/ UMe. This classic 1970 album will be released along with unreleased rehearsals, studio jams, and new mixes by Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell. The band reissued St. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band back in 2017 for its 50th anniversary, followed by The White Album the next year. Then, the band reissued Abbey Road in 2019. You can watch the special announcement below.
“I had always thought the original film Let It Be was pretty sad as it dealt with the break-up of our band,” writes Paul McCartney in his foreword for a special edition Let It Be book. “But the new film shows the camaraderie and love the four of us had between us. It also shows the wonderful times we had together and, combined with the newly remastered Let It Be album, stands as a powerful reminder of this time. It’s how I want to remember The Beatles.”
