June 1 will mark 50 years since The Beatles’ John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr astonished and delighted the world, ushering in the Summer of Love with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, a groundbreaking masterwork that became popular music’s most universally acclaimed album. To salute the occasion, The Beatles will release a suite of lavishly presented ‘Sgt. Pepper’ Anniversary Edition packages on May 26 (Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe).
The album is newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio and expanded with early takes from the studio sessions, including no fewer than 34 previously unreleased recordings. The GRAMMY Museum, Apple Corps Ltd. and Capitol/UMe invite you to be among the first to experience the new stereo mix for The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Anniversary Edition before its worldwide release.
The evening will feature an intimate conversation with special guest, producer Giles Martin, hosted by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation.
