The Beatles’ classic 1970 album!
180-gram audiophile vinyl

Sourced directly from the original session and rooftop performance 8-track tapes
The Beatles have announced a reissue of Let It Be, packaging the classic 1970 album with a new stereo mix of the album as guided by the original “reproduced for disc” version by Phil Spector and sourced directly from the original session and rooftop performance 8-track tapes.
“I had always thought the original film Let It Be was pretty sad as it dealt with the break-up of our band,” writes Paul McCartney in his foreword for a special edition Let It Be book included in the Super Deluxe Edition. “But the new film shows the camaraderie and love the four of us had between us. It also shows the wonderful times we had together, and combined with the newly remastered Let It Be album, stands as a powerful reminder of this time. It’s how I want to remember The Beatles.”
In 2017, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was reissued for its 50th anniversary. The White Album got the same treatment the following year, and Abbey Road was reissued in 2019.
Rolling Stone calls Let It Be the Beatles’ misunderstood masterpiece. The album with the band’s most daunting reputation. We’re all used to hearing it as their break-up album. The messy film soundtrack that arrived in May 1970, just as the band was breaking up.
But with Phil Spector taking the helm, the story of Let It Be had diamonds among shining amid its darker moments. This is the album with classics such as “Let It Be,” “Across the Universe,” “Get Back,” and “Two of Us.”
