Video promo for the Get Back Book
Just a day after having revealed the front cover of the upcoming “Get Back” book, here is a promotional video for the thing! We are guessing that the photos will not come to life in print, like they do in the video, though!
Here’s what they have to say about it:
London / New York – September 16, 2020 – Callaway Arts & Entertainment and Apple Corps Ltd. are pleased to announce plans for the global publication on August 31, 2021 of THE BEATLES: GET BACK, the first official standalone book to be released by The Beatles since international bestseller The Beatles Anthology.
Beautifully designed and produced, the 240-page hardcover tells the story of The Beatles’ creation of their 1970 album, Let It Be, in their own words.
Presenting transcribed conversations drawn from over 120 recorded hours of the band’s studio sessions with hundreds of previously unpublished images, including photos by Ethan A. Russell and Linda McCartney, THE BEATLES: GET BACK also includes a foreword written by Peter Jackson and an introduction by Hanif Kureishi. The book’s texts are edited by John Harris from original conversations between John, Paul, George and Ringo spanning three weeks of recording, culminating in The Beatles’ historic final rooftop concert.
THE BEATLES: GET BACK will be a special and essential companion to director Peter Jackson’s “THE BEATLES: GET BACK” feature documentary film, set for theatrical release on August 27, 2021.

I wonder if John Kosh will get a credit at all in this book? It seems very much based on the look of the book that came with the original Let It Be box.
The only thing that would persuade me to buy this is if the photos DID come to life, like in the video (and like in Harry Potter). It looks just like the Let It Be book which I’ve had for 50 years so…
But promoting a book that is not being released for another YEAR? What on Earth are they thinking? It’s ludicrous. It feels like they are trying to whip up the same sort of anticipation that surrounded the release of Free As A Bird, which was hyped up for more than a year, if I recall.
Is there anything different about the version of get back used on the soundtrack to this video? Sounds a little different to me perhaps?
