The Beatles are back on the guitar
The Beatles’ long-time musical collaborator Brian Epstein has announced the reissue of his album, the classic 1967 classic The Beatles, for the first time ever.
The album, which was written by Epstein, John Lennon, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, and Paul McCartney, has been reissued by RCA in a new box set, according to Rolling Stone.
It will be released on June 18 via RCA Records.
Epstein, who is also a member of the Beatles’ touring team, said the album was inspired by the experiences he had in the 1950s.
“The song was written for the group and we are very proud of it,” Epstein said in a statement.
“As the band grew older, it became obvious to us that we were a band that needed a better voice.
The new album was born out of this vision and the song will always be the same.”
The reissue includes new lyrics by Epstein and new music by McCartney and Lennon, as well as original recordings.
It also features reissues of songs by Lennon, McCartney, George and Ringo.
The band were among the greatest musicians in history and were the inspiration for many of the best-selling songs of the 20th century, including “I Am The Walrus” and “Love Me Do.”
They won four Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album in 1967, and have been honored for their music in several other awards.
