The Beatles won their second Grammy award, 58 years on from their first.

The Fab Four landed this award in the Best Music Video category at the ceremony for their track ‘I’m Only Sleeping’, which originally featured on the Beatles’ 1966 album ‘The Revolver’. 

However, a music video for this track was also produced, after Revolver was re-released with a newly-mixed and expanded special edition package, which also included a huge 5CD version.

The Beatles first announced plans to share a series of music videos in honour of the album’s anniversary back in 2022.

“a stop-motion process”

Such videos for these iconic Beatles hits also include ‘I’m Not Sleeping’, which was directed by Em Cooper, who accepted the Grammy Award on the night.

“Literally, I paint and then I shoot that individual frame straight away, and then I move on to the next one,” she said.

Cooper also added, “It’s like paint and shoot it, and then repaint. I might wipe it and repaint it or keep it wet and morph it like it’s painted on glass. Each photograph shows an entirely new painting. It’s kind of a stop-motion process”. 

This victory also comes 58 years on from the Beatles’ maiden Grammy victory, where they triumphed in the Album Of The Year for ‘Sgt Peppers Lonely Club Band’.

The music video also held off competition from Billie Eilish, Tyler Childers, Kendrick Lamar, and Troye Sivan to land this accolade.

See the rest of the nominees below.

  • Tyler Childers – “In Your Love”
  • Billie Eilish – What Was I Made For
  • Kendrick Lamar – Count Me Out
  • Troye Sivan – Rush
