In London today, Apple Corps announced the release date for the new version of the Beatles' classic Let It Be album. Let It Be ...Naked will be be released by EMI Records on November 17. This new version of the album will return to Sir Paul's original concept for the recording. In his statement, Sir Paul described the new version this way:
"If we had today's technology back then, it would sound like this because this is the noise we made in the studio. It's all exactly as it was in the room. You're right there now."
According to Apple Corps, the new album will keep the same track listing as the original album, however all background dialog as well as the tunes Dig It and Maggie Mae have been removed from the album. Don't Let Me Down has been added.
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine published earlier this year, Ringo Starr is quoted as saying:
"Paul was always totally opposed to Phil (Spector). I told him on the phone(recently), 'You're bloody right again. It sounds great without Phil.' Which it does."
