The book takes it start following the release of the bands’ self-titled album in 1969, and journeys through Let It Be’s recording session, culminating in their final performance on top of the Apple Corps office building in London.
Across 240 pages, Get Back brings together over 200 photographs – many of which previously unpublished – alongside conversations taken from over 120 hours of Let It Be’s studio sessions.
The book is being released as a companion to Peter Jackson’s forthcoming documentary of the same name, and features a foreword from Jackson himself.
Let It Be is the first official book linked to the band since 2000’s The Beatles Anthology.
