New Limited Edition Box Set To Celebrate The Beatles’ Singles

A new box set, The Beatles: The Singles Collection, will be released on November 22 via Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe. Containing 23 seven-inch vinyl singles—totaling 46 tracks—the collection offers an exciting look at the creative growth, prolificness and importance of contemporary music’s most acclaimed band.

The singles have been newly cut for vinyl from their original mono and stereo master tapes by Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios in London. Twenty-nine of the tracks were not included on original Beatles studio albums—and two of the singles were released in the mid-‘90s.

“Free As A Bird” and “Real Love” came about when Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr got together and recording the finishing touches on demos John Lennon left unfinished at the time of his death. The results were the aforementioned ‘90s singles, the only “new” releases from the Fab Four following their split in 1970.

The set itself is an aesthetic achievement, with the sleeves of each of the singles depicting accurate recreations of the tracks’ cover art from countries around the world.
