The Beatles Unveil ‘Sgt. Pepper’s…’ Alternate Take

As the iconic album toasts its 50th anniversary...

The Beatles have shared an alternative take of 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'.

The iconic 1967 album helped re-shape pop culture, pushing the album as an artefact and the studio as an instrument in itself.

Set to be re-issued for its 50th birthday, 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' has been expanded to include a handful of never before heard alternate takes.

'Take 9' of the title track has been placed online, alongside a few snippets of speech and interaction from the studio process itself.

Paul McCartney explains: “It’s crazy to think that 50 years later we are looking back on this project with such fondness and a little bit of amazement at how four guys, a great producer and his engineers could make such a lasting piece of art”.

Check out the alternate take below.

'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' will be re-issued on May 26th.
