The Beatles have treated fans to a fresh glimpse of their iconic 1970 single “Let It Be” with a newly released music video. Clocking in at four minutes, the clip features scenes from the restored version of the Let It Be movie, which originally hit screens in 1970 but remained unseen for years.

Recently refurbished by Peter Jackson, the acclaimed director behind the celebrated 2021 miniseries The Beatles: Get Back, the film is now available for streaming on Disney+.

Let It Be delves into the Beatles’ often-turbulent endeavor to create an album with all four members present in the studio simultaneously. Unlike their previous LP, 1968’s The White Album, which saw each Beatle contributing solo compositions with minimal collaboration, this project aimed to showcase a cohesive group effort.

The new music video compiles scenes from the restored Let It Be movie, including previously unseen outtakes, capturing the Beatles performing the titular song.

Originally released in March 1970 as the Beatles’ second-to-last single, “Let It Be” soared to the top spot on the U.S. charts and has since become one of their most beloved tracks. Paul McCartney, the song’s writer, has consistently featured it in his live performances over the years.

A Restored Gem on Disney+

Directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg and filmed in the studio in 1969 as the band convened to craft a new album, the restored version of Let It Be recently premiered on Disney+. Jackson’s meticulous restoration efforts, following his work on Get Back, offer a fresh perspective on the band’s creative process, capturing moments that were not featured in the miniseries.

The release of the new video coincides with a flurry of recent Beatles projects, including a documentary chronicling John Lennon’s inaugural solo performance and the announcement of four forthcoming biopics that will explore the Beatles’ legacy through the lens of each member.

In this era of rediscovery and celebration, the Beatles continue to captivate audiences old and new, reaffirming their status as timeless icons of music history.
