The Beatles Set to Re-Release Abbey Road With Unreleased Demos
Some artists and the music they make stand the test of time. The Beatles took the world by storm with their popular hits like "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Hey Jude," and "Let It Be," and the legacy lives on—they even have a film about their music. It's been 50 years since John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr worked together on their album, Abbey Road, and it's quite the feat to still be relevant after so much time has passed.
In celebration of the album's anniversary, The Beatles are releasing a 50th anniversary edition of Abbey Road with all the songs and unreleased demos on September 26, according to EW.com.

The special edition will include 23 session recordings and demos, most of which have never been heard before. Producer Giles Martin, son of the original album producer George Martin, will also have a special mix included.
The Beatles released 50th anniversary editions of their previous albums Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beatles. Abbey Road is their last album they recorded as a full band, while Let It Be is the final release from the band.
