“Revolver” by The Beatles Re-issues on the 28th October

New stereo and Dolby Atmos mixes of the Revolver album are presented, as well as the original mono mix, studio recordings and demos, and an EP featuring Paperback Writer and Rain.

Revolver: The Beatles 1966 album that changed everything. By taking popular music off its axis and thus ushering in a vibrant era of psychedelic, experimental and avant-garde music, Revolver brought about a radical cultural shift and marked an important shift in The Beatles own creative evolution. With Revolver, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr sailed a new musical sea together.

On October 28th, Revolver will be reissued worldwide in multiple special edition versions, newly mixed and expanded by Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe. New stereo and Dolby Atmos mixes of the Special Edition of the album’s opening song, Taxman, make their digital debut with today’s announcement.

The 14 songs on the Revolver album were newly mixed in stereo and Dolby Atmos by producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell, and the album’s original mono mix comes from the 1966 analogue mono recording.

The new Revolver Special Edition follows the universally acclaimed remixed and expanded special editions of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (2017), The BEATLES (White Album) (2018), Abbey Road (2019) and Let It Be (2021)

All new versions of Revolver include the new stereo album mix, built from the four-track analogue recordings. Audio is produced with stunning clarity with the help of cutting-edge mixing technology developed by the award-winning sound team led by Emile de la Rey at Peter Jackson’s WingNut Films Productions Ltd.

The physical and digital Super Deluxe versions also feature the original mono mix of the album, 28 early takes from the album’s recording sessions and three home demos, and a four track EP with new stereo mixes and original mono mixes remastered for Paperback Writer and Rain. The new Dolby Atmos mix from the album will be released digitally.

In all formats, the Revolver Special Edition features original artwork from the GRAMMY- winning album, created by longtime friend oh The Beatles, German bassist and artist Klaus Voormann. The Super Deluxe CD and vinyl versions booklet includes a foreword by Paul McCartney; an introduction by Giles Martin ; an illuminating essay by QuestLove; and Insightful chapters and detailed notes on the various songs, written by Beatles historian, author and radio producer Kevin Howlett. The book is illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photos, never-before-published images of handwritten letters, engraving sheets, print advertisements from 1966, excerpts from Voormann’s graphic novel, Birth of an icon: REVOLVER

Originally releases on 5 August 1966, Revolver spent seven weeks at #1 on the UK Albums Chart, and the double single featuring Eleanor Rigby and Yellow Submarine topped the UK Singles Charts for four weeks, weeks in August and September. In the US, Capitol released an 11-songs version of Revolver, which spent six weeks at #1 on the Billboard album charts. I’m Only Sleeping, And Your Bird Can Sing and Doctor Robert were previously pulled from the sessions for the North American compilation release Yesterday and Today in June. This album’s cover was originally printed with the infamous “butcher’s cover” before pre-release controversy resulted in Capitol recalling and reissued over a million LPs in mono and stereo with an innocuous photo of the Beatles huddled around a trunk.
