A new Beatles book is set to be released next year, to accompany the Peter Jackson directed documentary ‘The Beatles: Get Back’. The book will tell the story of the making of the band’s ‘Let It Be’ album in their own words. As will the film, for that matter.

As well as transcribed interviews with members of the band, the book will also feature photographs – largely previously unpublished – taken by Ethan A Russell and Linda McCartney.

“The Beatles gave my generation their genius and their joy and they changed the world through their art”, says Nicholas Callaway of the book’s publisher Callaway Arts & Entertainment. “The creativity and inspiration expressed in this landmark book and in Peter Jackson’s film are as important and relevant today as ever”.

Well that’s good then. It’ll be the first official book about the Beatles since ‘The Beatles Anthology’, which was published in 2000. This new one will be launched on 31 Aug 2021. The film is set to hit cinemas – assuming cinemas are still a thing by then – on 27 Aug 2021.
