The Beatles are set to release new album ’LOVE’ in November.

’LOVE’ came about when surviving Beatles - Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr - plus John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono and George Harrison’s widow Olivia - asked the Beatles producer Sir George Martin and his son Giles to make experimental mixes from original Beatles master tapes for a collaboration with Cirque De Soleil.

The musical piece is set to be featured in the Beatles and Cirque Du Soleil production ’Mirage’, which made its debut in Las Vegas in June.

Speaking about the project, Sir George Martin said: “The music was designed for the ’LOVE’ show in Las Vegas but in doing so we’ve created a Beatles album.

The Beatles always looked for other ways of expressing themselves and this is another step forward for them.”

Discussing the creation of the project, Giles added: “We took all the Beatles catalogue from tape, the original four tracks, eight tracks and two tracks and used this palette of sounds and music to create a soundbed.

“What people will be hearing on the album is a new experience, a way of re-living the whole Beatles musical lifespan in a very condensed period.”

It will be the band's first new material for ten years. In 1995 the band released ’Free As A Bird’ and in 1996 ’Real Love’ to promote the ’Anthology 1’ and the 'Anthology 2' compilations.

An exact release date for the album is yet to be confirmed.
