A teaser for a new video for the Beatles’ Here Comes The Sun has been released ahead of the full reveal which will arrive on Thursday.
The track features on the upcoming 50th anniversary edition of Abbey Road, which will launch this coming Friday (September 27) through Apple Corps Ltd/Capitol/UMe.
A statement on the video reads: "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 is directed by Trunk Animation’s director team Alasdair Brotherston and Jock Mooney and produced by Trunk’s Maria Manton.
“The video’s sun centrepiece 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.”
The full video will premiere at 5.02pm GMT on Thursday.
The Abbey Road box set will feature all 17 tracks which have been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell in stereo, hi-res stereo, 5.1 surround and Dolby Atmos, with the package also set to feature 23 session recordings and demos – the majority of which are previously unreleased.
The package’s 40 tracks will be spread across three CDs, while a Blu-ray will contain the Dolby Atmos, 96kHz/24 bit high resolution stereo, and 96 kHz/24 bit DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. A vinyl package will also be made available.
The box set will also include a 100-page hardback book which will feature a foreword by Paul McCartney and feature illustrations and previously unpublished photographs. There will be images of handwritten lyrics, a George Martin score, recording sheets, tape boxes and reproduced print adverts from the original release.
