The Beatles To Release New ‘Let It Be’ Video

The Beatles have announced a new music video for ‘Let It Be’.

The Beatles released the classic track from their final studio album in 1970 and now, almost 55 years later, a brand new video featuring clips from the Disney+ film of the same title will be released on Friday (10.05.24), along with unseen outtakes from the rushes.

The ‘Let It Be’ film contains footage not featured in the ‘Get Back’ docuseries, bringing viewers firstly into rehearsals, then the studio and finally onto Apple Corps’ London rooftop in January 1969 as The Beatles – which consisted of Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and the late John Lennon and George Harrison – are joined by songwriter Billy Preston where they write and record their GRAMMY Award-winning ‘Let It Be’ album’ , and perform live for the final time as a group.

Apple Corps got Jackson’s Park Road Post Production to “dive into a meticulous restoration of the film from the original 16mm negative,” and used the same technology used in the ‘Get Back’ series.

Lindsay-Hogg commented: “Let It Be was ready to go in October/November 1969, but it didn’t come out until April 1970. One month before its release, The Beatles officially broke up.

“And so the people went to see ‘Let It Be’ with sadness in their hearts, thinking, ‘I’ll never see The Beatles together again. I will never have that joy again,’ and it very much darkened the perception of the film.

“But in fact, there’s a great deal of joy and happiness and creation going on, and ‘Let It Be’ is – especially when you get to the roof, and you see the exchange and the way that they look at each other – essentially a happy and ‘up’ movie. I was knocked out by what Peter was able to do with ‘Get Back,’ using all the footage I’d shot 50 years previously.”

Watch the new video from 6am PDT / 9am EDT / 2pm BST / 11pm East Coast Australia on Friday 10 May.
