On this day 43 years ago, the Beatles released ‘Let it Be’

On this day 43 years ago, the Beatles released ‘Let it Be’

May 08, 2023

On 8 May 1970, the Beatles released their twelfth and final studio album, Let it Be. The album had been in the works for several years (and was intended to be released before Abbey Road), but had faced numerous setbacks and delays, including conflicts within the band. Recording took place during a tumultuous time in the band’s history, with tensions running high and the Beatles on the brink of breaking up.

Despite these challenges, Let it Be was eventually released, and to this day it remains a beloved and iconic album.

The album features several classic tracks, including the title track Let it Be, Get Back, The Long and Winding Road, and Across the Universe. The album was produced by Phil Spector, who added his signature Wall of Sound production style to many of the tracks. While Spector's production has been controversial over the years, with some fans and critics feeling that it detracts from the band's raw energy, it's undeniable that the album contains some of the Beatles' most powerful and emotional performances.

The release of Let it Be was accompanied by a documentary film of the same name, which chronicled the band's struggles and creative process during the recording sessions. The film has become a cult classic, offering a glimpse into the band's inner workings and capturing the spirit of the era. Peter Jackson’s take on the film—a documentary series entitled The Beatles: Get Back—was released on Disney+ in 2021.

As it was the band’s final album, the release on 8 May 1970, marked the end of an era in rock ‘n’ roll history. However, our enjoyment of the Beatles’ music doesn’t have to end there! Why not continue to celebrate their legacy with our Beatles-inspired poster?
