Pre-order the Super Deluxe Edition vinyl box set of 'Let it Be' in the BV shop.

The Beatles have announced a massive reissue of Let It Be, due October 15 via Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe. There's a Super Deluxe version (5CD/1 Blu-ray or 4LP/1 12+ EP) with 27 previously unreleased recordings, a Deluxe Edition with the new mix of the original album and one bonus disc of outtake highlights, and a Standard Edition with just the new mix of the album. The announcement reads:

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.

[...] The Super Deluxe CD and vinyl collections’ beautiful book features Paul McCartney’s foreword; an introduction by Giles Martin; a remembrance by Glyn Johns; insightful chapters and detailed track notes by Beatles historian, author, and radio producer Kevin Howlett; and an essay by journalist and author John Harris exploring the sessions’ myths vs. their reality. The book is illustrated, scrapbook style, with rare and previously unpublished photos by Ethan A. Russell and Linda McCartney, as well as never before published images of handwritten lyrics, session notes, sketches, Beatles correspondence, tape boxes, film frames, and more.

The reissue comes ahead of Disney+'s upcoming docu-series The Beatles: Get Back, and in the foreword for the new Let It Be Special Edition book, Paul McCartney writes, "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. 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."

You can pre-order the Super Deluxe 4LP vinyl edition or the standard 1LP edition in our shop. We've got lot of other Beatles albums, t-shirts and toys in the shop too.

Along with the announcement comes streams of three tracks, the new 2021 mix of "Let It Be," the rooftop performance recording of "Don't Let Me Down," and a 1969 Glyn Johns mix of "For You Blue." Listen to all three here or below, and also view the massive tracklist below. More details here.
