The Beatles Release “Come Together” 2019 Remix
via The Beatles/YouTube
Out On September 27
The Beatles recently shared two versions of Come Together, the opening track to their 1969 album Abbey Road. Both of these will be featured on Abbey Road‘s massive 50th anniversary box-set reissue, out on September 27. First is a previously unreleased outtake from studio sessions labeled as Take 5. It’s raw and imperfect and John Lennon can be heard chuckling and even improvising lyrics toward the end.
The second one is a 2019 mix from Giles Martin, the son of late Beatles producer George Martin. In an interview with the Rolling Stone magazine, Giles Martin said: “They knew this was it. The way I would explain it is, you’ve only got a certain number of breaths or heartbeats left in your life, and you want to make sure they’re important. That’s the essence of Abbey Road — they knew how important it was.”
The 40-track Abbey Road box set will feature studio outtakes, demos, stereo remixes, a 100-page hardback book with foreword by Paul McCartney, previously unpublished photographs (mostly taken by Linda McCartney), sketches, Beatles correspondence, tape boxes, recording sheets, a George Martin score, and even handwritten lyrics. It’s a must-have for every classic rock fan.
