Beatles' circus show album ready
The Beatles
The surviving Beatles have backed the project
A new Beatles album, overseen by their most famous producer Sir George Martin, is to be released next month.

Existing master tapes were used to remix songs into what is described as a "unique soundscape" entitled Love.

Love began life as a collaboration between the surviving Beatles and entertainment troupe Cirque Du Soleil for their Las Vegas show.

Sir Paul McCartney said: "This album puts the Beatles back together again." Love will be released on 20 November.

Sir George worked alongside his son, Giles Martin, with the complete Beatles recordings at Abbey Road studios.

Classic tracks

Sir Paul added: "Suddenly there is George and John with me and Ringo. It's kind of magical."

Ringo Starr said: "George and Giles did such a great job combining these tracks. It's really powerful for me and I even heard things I'd forgotten we had recorded."

The project has also been backed by Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison.

The 28 track album uses the full range of the group's output from I Want To Hold Your Hand to Get Back.

Love will be released in a 78-minute stereo CD version and in an 81-minute audio-only version which will play through DVD systems.
