Fab Four enthusiasts will be delighted this month to have been granted access to four previously unreleased mixes from the band’s 1969 and 1970 Get Back sessions which ultimately culminated in 1970’s Let It Be. The batch of songs, released collectively as a single titled Get Back (Take 8), includes alternate versions of “Get Back,” “One After 909,” “Across The Universe,” and George Harrison’s “I Me Mine.”

The newly surfaced tracks were released as part of a rollout for the Super Deluxe reissue of Let It Be which will include 27 previously unavailable session tracks, as well as an updated mix by producer Giles Martin, and will hit shelves October 15th, 2021.

The special edition release paves the way for Peter Jackson’s three-part documentary series chronicling the production of the original Let It Be album. The series, which will debut on the Disney+ streaming service, was originally intended to see release as a film, and has encountered multiple push-backs prior to the establishment of a final release date. Part one of the documentary series is set to premiere on November 25th, 2021, with subsequent parts premiering over the course of the following days.

The outtake tracks are available to hear now via streaming services as well as the band’s YouTube channel.
