A video to accompany the 2018 mix of The Beatles’ Glass Onion has been released.
The new version of the song will appear on the upcoming reissue of the Fab Four’s classic 1968 self-titled album, aka The White Album, which will arrive on Friday (November 9).
The promo features rare photographs of the band and video footage, which has been cut-up and combined to create the a poster of the album.
The video was produced by Richard Barnett and Layla Atkinson of Trunk Animation, and directed by Trunk’s director team Alasdair and Jock, who reconstructed and animated the original poster’s montage.
Check it out below.
All 30 album tracks have been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio. Also included are 27 early acoustic demos along with 50 session takes – most of which have been previously unreleased.
Martin and Okell worked with a team of engineers and audio restoration specialists at Abbey Road Studios in London, with the album – including Martin’s new stereo mix – sourced directly from the original four-track and eight-track session tapes.
