The Beatles’ final album, Abbey Road, was released in September 1969. It’s one of the band’s most well-known albums and has been covered by many artists all over the world. The album is also being rereleased for its 45th anniversary in September 2019 on vinyl and CD, as well as digitally on Apple Music, Spotify, and other streaming services. The original recording sessions produced eleven songs plus nine covers that were eventually edited into a single LP album.
The Beatles’ last album, Abbey Road, was recorded in the summer of 1969 at EMI Studios in London. After finishing their final album, Let It Be, which was scheduled to be released early in the year, The Beatles decided to take a break after spending almost a year in the studio. McCartney approached George Martin and asked if he would let him record an album of single sides that he had written or co-written with Lennon–McCartney since they had stopped touring at the end of 1966. Martin responded with “What do you have so far?”
McCartney played Martin six songs that he had written or co-written for the album, including “Come Together”, “Here Comes the Sun”, and “Something”. Martin asked McCartney to deliver two songs on a reel-to-reel tape recorder, because that was all he had in his studio.
