Surviving Beatles Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have announced their first new Beatles album in more than 25 years. The album will be a collection of some of their best-known songs that were remixed to provide the soundtrack to the Cirque du Soleil's Love production. The album is set to be released next month and promises provide a "new experience" of the Beatles' music. The soundtrack was produced by George Martin and his son Giles with the support of Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney, John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono and George Harrison's widow Olivia.
Sir George Martin explains:
"This music was designed for the Love show but in doing so we've created a new Beatles album. The Beatles always looked for other ways of expressing themselves and this is another step forward for them.
His son Giles added:
"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."
