It was filmed in the iconic Studio Two
A video for The Beatles‘ ‘Here Comes The Sun’ has finally been made and has today (September 26) been shared on the 50th anniversary of the release of ‘Abbey Road’.
In a nod to the beloved song’s title, the clip – set to a new stereo mix of the George Harrison composition – captures a gorgeous sunrise illuminating Abbey Road Studios’ Studio Two, where the Fab Four recorded most of the legendary album. “The video’s sun centrepiece was filmed as it was meticulously crafted on-set in Abbey Road’s Studio Two,” a press release notes.
The clip also features photos from the Apple Corps archive, as well as footage shot by Linda McCartney and supplied by Paul McCartney. Watch the video below.
The video comes a day before the 50th anniversary reissue of ‘Abbey Road’ arrives on September 27. Besides session recordings and demos, the reissue will feature new mixes of the 17 tracks by Giles Martin – the son of late Beatles producer George Martin – and engineer Sam Okell. The release also features new mixes of ‘Oh! Darling’ and ‘Come Together’.

Recently unearthed tape of a previously unheard conversation between John Lennon, McCartney and Harrison revealed that The Beatles were actually planning another record after ‘Abbey Road’.
In the tape, which captures the tension that marred the Beatles’ final years, McCartney can also be heard saying, “I thought until this album that George’s songs weren’t that good.” Later, Harrison retorts, “That’s a matter of taste. All down the line, people have liked my songs.”
