2018 Stereo Mix Sourced Directly From the Original 4-Track/8-Track Session Tapes: The Beatles The White Album Deluxe 3CD Set Also Includes 27 Acoustic Esher Demos and 24-Page Booklet

In November 1968, millions of double LPs were shipped to record stores worldwide ahead of that tumultuous year's most anticipated music event: the November 22nd release of The Beatles (soon to be better known as The White Album). With their ninth studio effort, The Beatles took the world on a whole new trip, side one blasting off with the exhilarating rush of a screaming jet escorting Paul McCartney's punchy, exuberant vocals on "Back In The U.S.S.R." "Dear Prudence" came next, John Lennon warmly beckoning his friend and all of us to "look around." George Harrison imparted timeless wisdom in "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," singing, "With every mistake we must surely be learning." Ringo Starr's "Don't Pass Me By" marked his first solo songwriting credit on a Beatles album. For 50 years, The White Album has invited its listeners to venture forth and explore the breadth and ambition of its music, delighting and inspiring each new generation in turn.

In November 2018, The Beatles will release a suite of lavishly presented White Album packages including this deluxe 3CD-set. All the new White Album releases include producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell's new stereo album mix, sourced directly from the original four-track and eight-track session tapes. Martin's new mix is guided by the album's original stereo mix produced by his father, George Martin. "In remixing ‘The White Album,' we've tried to bring you as close as possible to The Beatles in the studio," explains Giles in his written introduction for the new edition. "We've peeled back the layers of the ‘Glass Onion' with the hope of immersing old and new listeners into one of the most diverse and inspiring albums ever made."

The album's 30 newly mixed tracks are also joined here by 27 early acoustic Esther Demos, most of which are previously unreleased in any form
Much of the initial songwriting for The White Album was done in Rishikesh, India between February and April 1968, when Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr joined a course at the Maharishi's Academy of Transcendental Meditation. In a postcard to Ringo, who had returned to England before the others, John wrote, "we've got about two L.P.s worth of songs now so get your drums out." During the last week of May, The Beatles gathered at George's house in Esher, Surrey, where they recorded acoustic demos for 27 songs. Known as the Esher Demos, all 27 recordings have been sourced from the original four-track tapes. Twenty-one of the demoed songs were recorded during the subsequent studio sessions, and 19 were ultimately finished and included on The White AlbumSeven have previously been released on Anthology, but they were mixed with the technology of the time and now Giles has been able to really clean them up and bring out the intimate nature of the recordings. 

This is the first time The White Album has been remixed and presented with additional demos. The album's sweeping new edition follows 2017's universally acclaimed Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Anniversary Edition releases. To create the new stereo mixes for The White Album, Martin and Okell worked with an expert team of engineers and audio restoration specialists at Abbey Road Studios in London. The deluxe 3CD-set is presented in an embossed digipak with the fold-out poster and portrait photos, plus a 24-page booklet abridged from the Super Deluxe book.
