The Beatles have released a first-look trailer and launched a Premiere Watch page for the brand new music video for George Harrison’s classic track “Here Comes The Sun” from the group’s legendary Abbey Road album.
On the record’s 50th anniversary this Thursday, September 26th, the music video’s global premiere event will be hosted across the official YouTube channels for the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.
The video will premiere at 5:02pm IRISH TIME but fans can tune in an hour ahead for “an engaging 60-minute countdown” to the music video’s worldwide debut. Find out how you can be featured in the premiere here: TheBeatles.lnk.to/HCTSContest.
According to the press release, “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’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.”
Set for release on September 27th is the 50th anniversary edition of the Beatles‘ 1969 swan song Abbey Road. Newly remixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo, high res stereo, 5.1 surround, and Dolby Atmos, the collection is accompanied by 23 session recordings and demos, most of which are previously unreleased. The set will be available on CD, vinyl, and all digital platforms.
