The Beatles preview White Album reissue with Back In The U.S.S.R. streams

The Beatles are streaming multiple versions of “Back In The U.S.S.R.” as a preview to the upcoming 50th anniversary reissue of The White Album.

Fans can hear the new 2018 stereo mix of the song by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell, an instrumental backing track from studio sessions, and an early acoustic version from the Esher demo series.

Due November 9, The Beatles will release multiple expanded versions of their self-titled 1968 double album – commonly known as “The White Album.”

The project will issued in a 7-disc Super Deluxe box set package, a 3CD Deluxe edition and a 2LP vinyl version, with all formats presenting a new 2018 remix of the landmark record.

“The White Album” debuted and/or reached the top of the charts in countries around the world upon its original release, while it went on to earn 19x Platinum status in the US for sales of 9.5 million copies.

Much of the material for the record was written while The Beatles were on a retreat with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in India in early 1968.

“We had left Sgt. Pepper’s band to play in his sunny Elysian Fields and were now striding out in new directions without a map,” says Paul McCartney in his written introduction for the new releases.
