The Let It Be album has been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell in stereo, 5.1 surround DTS, and Dolby Atmos. The album’s sweeping new Special Edition follows the universally acclaimed remixed and expanded anniversary editions of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (2017), The BEATLES (‘White Album’) (2018), and Abbey Road (2019). All the new Let It Be releases feature the new stereo mix of the album as guided by the original “reproduced for disc” version by Phil Spector and sourced directly from the original session and rooftop performance eight-track tapes. The physical and digital Super Deluxe collections also feature 27 previously unreleased session recordings, a four-track Let It Be EP, and the never before released 14-track Get Back stereo LP mix compiled by engineer Glyn Johns in May 1969.


On January 2, 1969, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr kickstarted the new year together on a cavernous soundstage at Twickenham Film Studios in London. The Beatles jumped into rehearsals for a project envisioned to get them back to where they once belonged: onstage. For 21 days, cameras and tape recorders documented almost every moment: first at Twickenham and then at The Beatles’ own Apple Studio, where Billy Preston joined them on keyboards. Together they rehearsed brand new originals and jammed on older songs, all captured live and unvarnished.


On January 30, the cameras and recorders were rolling as The Beatles, with Preston, staged what was to be their final concert on the chilly rooftop of their Savile Row Apple Corps headquarters before a small assembly of family and friends, and any others who were within wind-carried range of their amps. The midday performance brought London’s West End to a halt as necks craned skyward from the streets and the windows of neighboring buildings were flung open for better vantage. A flurry of noise complaints drew police officers to the rooftop, shutting the concert down after 42 minutes.


Work to compile an album to be called “Get Back” was carried out in April and May by Glyn Johns, who, for his version, included false starts, banter between songs, early takes rather than later, more polished performances, and even “I’ve Got A Feeling” falling apart with John explaining, “I cocked it up trying to get loud.” The Beatles, however, decided to shelve the project’s copious tapes, film reels, and photos, in order to record and release their LP masterpiece, Abbey Road. Drawn from the tapes made in January 1969, plus some sessions which preceded and followed those recordings, The Beatles’ final album, Let It Be, was eventually issued on May 8, 1970 (May 18 in the U.S.) to accompany the release of the Let It Be film.


The sessions that brought about the Let It Be album and film represent the only time in The Beatles’ career that they were documented at such great length while creating music in the studio. More than 60 hours of unreleased film footage, more than 150 hours of unreleased audio recordings, and hundreds of unpublished photographs have been newly explored and meticulously restored for three complementary and definitive Beatles releases this fall: a feast for the senses spanning the entire archival treasure. The new Let It Be Special Edition is joined by “The Beatles: Get Back”, the hotly-anticipated documentary series directed by three-time Oscar®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson, and a beautiful new hardcover book also titled The Beatles: Get Back. The raw sources explored for the new projects have revealed that a more joyous, benevolent spirit imbued the sessions than was conveyed in the 1970 Let It Be film’s 80 minutes.


“I had always thought the original film Let It Be was pretty sad as it dealt with the break-up of our band, but the new film shows the camaraderie and love the four of us had between us,” writes Paul McCartney in his foreword for the Let It Be Special Edition book. “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.”

When The Beatles arrived at Twickenham in January 1969, their self-titled album (AKA ‘The White Album’) was still topping charts around the world following its November 1968 release. They had an ambitious plan in mind for a project that would include a stage performance for a “TV spectacular” and a live album. Michael Lindsay-Hogg was hired to direct the concert and document the rehearsals with unfettered “fly-on-the-wall” filming and mono audio recording on two camera-linked Nagra reel-to-reel tape machines. Ethan A. Russell was brought in for exclusive all-access photography. Beatles producer George Martin and engineer Glyn Johns supervised the sound. Johns remembers, “Paul told me he had this idea to do a live concert and he wanted me to engineer it, because I had a reasonably good track record of making live albums.” Impressed by the band’s day-to-day progress with their slate of new songs, Martin later recalled, “It was a great idea, which I thought was well worth working on. A live album of new material. Most people who did a live album would be rehashing old stuff.” After 10 days on the soundstage, The Beatles and the film crew later moved to the band’s more intimate and cozy Apple Studio. There, Johns manned the controls of borrowed equipment from The Beatles’ old stomping ground, Abbey Road Studios, to record on eight-track tape. Billy Preston was invited to play keyboards with the band at Apple, lifting the sessions with his boundless talent and buoyant bonhomie.


In April 1969, The Beatles rush-released their worldwide number one single “Get Back”/“Don’t Let Me Down”. Promoted as “The Beatles as nature intended” and “as live as can be, in this electronic age,” both sides of the disc were credited to “The Beatles with Billy Preston”. “The greatest surprise was when the record came out,” Preston remembered in 2002. “They didn’t tell me they were going to put my name on it! The guys were really kind to me.” The “Let It Be” single produced by George Martin, released March 6, 1970, is different from the album version “reproduced” by Phil Spector. Exemplifying Spector’s signature Wall of Sound production style on the Let It Be album is his orchestral overdub on “The Long and Winding Road”, which became The Beatles’ 20th U.S. number one single.


Directed by Peter Jackson (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “They Shall Not Grow Old”), “The Beatles: Get Back” takes audiences back in time to the band’s intimate recording sessions during a pivotal moment in music history. Because of the wealth of tremendous footage Jackson has reviewed, which he has spent the past three years restoring and editing, “The Beatles: Get Back” will be presented as three separate episodes. Each episode is approximately two hours in length, rolling out over three days, November 25, 26 and 27, 2021, exclusively on Disney+.


The documentary series showcases the warmth, camaraderie and creative genius that defined the legacy of the iconic foursome, compiled from over 60 hours of unseen footage shot in January 1969 (by Michael Lindsay-Hogg) and more than 150 hours of unheard audio, all of which has been brilliantly restored. Jackson is the only person in 50 years to have been given access to these private film archives. “The Beatles: Get Back” is the story of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as they plan their first live show in over two years, capturing the writing and rehearsing of 14 new songs, originally intended for release on an accompanying live album. The documentary features – for the first time in its entirety – The Beatles’ last live performance as a group, the unforgettable rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row, as well as other songs and classic compositions featured on the band’s final two albums, Abbey Road and Let It Be. The music in the series is also newly mixed by Giles Martin (“Rocketman”) and Sam Okell (“Yesterday”).


Ahead of the series’ debut, Apple Corps Ltd./Callaway Arts & Entertainment will release The Beatles: Get Back book worldwide on October 12. Available in English and nine international language editions, The Beatles: Get Back is the first official standalone book to be released by The Beatles since international bestseller The Beatles Anthology. Beautifully designed and produced, the 240-page hardcover complements the “Get Back” documentary series and Let It Be Special Edition with transcriptions of many of The Beatles’ recorded conversations from the three weeks of rehearsals and sessions and hundreds of exclusive, never-before-published images, including photos by Ethan A. Russell and Linda McCartney. The Beatles: Get Back begins with a foreword written by Peter Jackson and an introduction by Hanif Kureishi. The book’s texts are edited by John Harris.

Et kjærlig håndtrykk fra Lukas Graham med ny singel "Call My Name"17.9.2021 09:47:10 CEST | Pressemelding

«Call My Name» er et nytt popspill fra det danske verdensnavnet Lukas Graham som ikke er redd for å gå tett på. Den nye singelen slippes 17 september. "Jeg ville ønske at flere mennesker i mit liv, havde givet mig den besked, da jeg var yngre: Call My Name! I mange af livets sværeste øjeblikke skal der jo ikke mere til end en ven at holde i hånden, en at tage samtalen med - eller bare en der lytter lidt.” 17 september slipper Lukas Graham det store strykearrangementet og den håpefulle gospelsangen med den fengende nye singelen «Call My Name». At Lukas Forchhammer har lært av, og ikke minst gått gjennom livet er ikke noe nytt. Vi har hørt livshistorien hans utfolde seg på de vakreste måter gjennom sanger som «You’re Not There», «Happy Home» og selvfølgelig «7 Years». «Call My Name» er eksempelet på hvordan de uunngåelige støtene i livets lange reise kan skape den justeringen og opplevelsen som gjør at du forandrer deg. ”Det er nemt at isolere sig selv, når livet bliver svært, og glemme

OnklP, Ingebjørg Bratland og Luke Elliot slipper ny låt "Spring for livet"17.9.2021 09:38:00 CEST | Pressemelding

Fredag 17 september slipper Luke Elliot singelen “Spring for livet” sammen med med OnklP og Ingebjørg Bratland. OnklP var en av de første Elliot møtte da han kom til Norge første gang og har lenge hatt et ønske om å spille inn noe sammen med ham. Sammen med Ingebjørg Bratland og i tillegg Anders Nilsen bak produsentspakene er “Spring for livet” trioens første samarbeid. Den Oslo-baserte amerikanske sangeren, låtskriveren og pianisten Luke Elliot og OnklP skrev skissen over piano og det å invitere med Ingebjørg på laget var noe de begge ønsket sterkt, imponerte som de er av hennes musikalitet og vesen. Resultatet ble en sterk låt, fylt med energi og fortryllende vokaler. «Spring for livet» er en melankolsk låt inspirert av dype samtaler om levd liv og dystre emner som rus og avhengighet. Luke forklarer bakgrunnen for samarbeidet slik: «I just had this idea of recording something with Pål. I’ve had it since we first met in Oslo a few years ago. I was just over in Europe for my first to

Handsfree - breial og forfriskende debut fra stjerneskuddet Cherie Mwangi16.9.2021 15:37:16 CEST | Pressemelding

Fredag 17. september debuterer Cherie Mwangi hos Universal Music Norge med singelen «Handsfree». Cherie Mwangi (21) er den rå, unge kvinnelige rapperen som kan minne om amerikanske Megan Thee Stallion og Saweetie med en fresh norsk twist. Cherie har en stor personlighet og er ikke redd for å tøye grenser, og beveger seg i et landskap som ingen andre i Norge gjør i dag. Hun omtaler seg selv som «every good girls alter ego». 17. september er hun klar med sin breiale og forfriskende debut «Handsfree», som handler om å ta kontroll over sin egen seksualitet: «Generelt handler rap alt for mye om hva en kvinne kan gjøre for en mann og ikke omvendt, og jeg er her for å endre på det. Kvinner ble ikke skapt for å tilfredsstille menn og jeg føler at menn har for mye kontroll over hva kvinner føler de kan gjøre med sin egen kropp.» - Cherie Mwangi Cherie har til tross for sin unge alder et stort og viktig mål: «Jeg er imot misogyni og vil nå ut til frisinnede mennesker og kvinner og menn som vil r

GULE ROSER – Sårbar og personlig debut-EP fra Ylva9.9.2021 14:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding

Fredag 10. september slipper stortalentet Ylva sin debut-EP GULE ROSER. Den personlige låtsamlingen følger hennes reise i å stå på egne ben, utforske og finne seg selv og sitt fulle potensiale. Prosjektet GULE ROSER startet da Ylva flyttet hjemmefra for første gang, og forteller en historie om hvordan det er å være ung kvinne i Norge i 2021. Låtene tar for seg de ulike temaene og sinnsstemningene hun og mange andre unge opplever i dag, som kan være til inspirasjon for mange. «Gule Roser setter lys på alle følelsene og utfordringene som jeg måtte gjennom da jeg skulle stå på egne ben.Jeg ble så inspirert av det gamle blomsterspråket hvor gule roser blant annet står for svik, utroskap og falskhet. Roser er noe vakkert, men samtidig ligger det alltid noe bak det vakre. Det var faktisk min mor som nevnte dette for meg og da føltes tittelen enda mer riktig. Jeg har gått inn i dette prosjektet med hele mitt hjerte og jeg er veldig stolt over hva Benjie og jeg har fått til. Jeg må også gi en
