Sgt. Pepper's 50th Anniversary EditionWednesday, April 5, 2017
To salute the 50th anniversary of the album, The Beatles will release a suite of lavishly presented ‘Sgt. Pepper’ Anniversary Edition packages on 26th May (Apple Corps Ltd. / Capitol / USM). The album is newly mixed by Giles Martin and Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio and expanded with early takes from the studio sessions, including no fewer than 34 previously unreleased recordings.
To create the new stereo and 5.1 surround audio mixes for ‘Sgt. Pepper’, producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell worked with an expert team of engineers and audio restoration specialists at Abbey Road Studios in London.
All of the Anniversary Edition releases include Martin’s new stereo mix of the album, which was sourced directly from the original four-track session tapes and guided by the original, Beatles-preferred mono mix produced by his father, George Martin.
