New video for The Beatles song ‘Here Comes The Sun’ set for 50th anniversary
The Beatles will finally get an official video for their song ‘Here Comes The Sun’ as part of the Abbey Road 50th anniversary celebrations.
The song, written by George Harrison and released as part of the 1969 album, was famously created at the country house of his friend Eric Clapton and remains one of Harrison’s most well-known Beatles songs.
“‘Here Comes the Sun’ was written at the time when Apple was getting like school, where we had to go and be businessmen: ‘Sign this’ and ‘sign that’,” Harrison once explained in his autobiography, I, Me, Mine. “Anyway, it seems as if winter in England goes on forever, by the time spring comes you really deserve it. So one day I decided I was going to sag off Apple and I went over to Eric Clapton’s house. The relief of not having to go see all those dopey accountants was wonderful, and I walked around the garden with one of Eric’s acoustic guitars and wrote ‘Here Comes the Sun’.”
Never released with an official video, The Beatles are planning to release an official clip which will feature previously unseen footage shot by Linda McCartney along with photos from the Apple Corps archive. “The video’s sun centrepiece was filmed as it was meticulously crafted on-set in Abbey Road’s Studio Two,” a press release explains.
