‘Love’, the New CD from the Beatles - Due November

Apple Corps Ltd/Emi Music Proudly Announce the Release of ‘Love’, the New CD from the Beatles - Due November 2006

After being asked by the remaining Beatles, Ringo and Paul, along with Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison, to make experimental mixes from the original master tapes for a collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, Sir George Martin, The Beatles legendary producer, and his son Giles Martin have been working with the entire archive of Beatles recordings to create LOVE.

The result is an unprecedented approach to the music. Using the master tapes at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios, Sir George and Giles have created a unique soundscape. The release of this album, which is also featured in the Cirque Du Soleil/Beatles collaborative production of the same name at the Mirage in Las Vegas, has been much anticipated.

“This music was designed for the LOVE show in Las Vegas but in doing so we’ve created a new Beatles album” said Sir George. “The Beatles always looked for other ways of expressing themselves and this is another step forward for them.”

Giles continues, “We took all the Beatles catalogue from tape, the original four tracks, eight tracks and two tracks and used this palette of sounds and music to create a sound bed. What people will be hearing on the album is a new experience, a way of re-living the whole Beatles musical lifespan in a very condensed period”

The album will be released worldwide in November 2006. Additional information, including a track listing will be available shortly.
