Beatles White Album Reissue to Celebrate 50 years in Talks

After reissuing Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band last year, Beatles fans are expecting a 50th Anniversary reissue of the legendary “White Album”.

Fans might have a major release from the Beatles this year- with a release of an expanded version of the “White Album”. Beatlefan magazine reported that the group’s 1968 self-titled double album is in the works. Rumor is that the project has yet to be approved by the Beatles’ and their estate holders; Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, and Olivia Harrison.

Ringo Starr sounds like he’s on board- from his NYT interview he admitted “I’d like to do the ‘White Album.’ I think Giles (Martin) should redo that. I love the ‘White Album’ (because) we were back being a band, even though emotionally it was a bit weird between us for a while, and I left the band and came back, and George Harrison had all those flowers (decked out on my drum kit) — you know that story.”

During an interview with the BBC, Giles Martin – son of the late Beatles producer George Martin — let it slip that the “White Album” was the “next release,” before walking it back.

The “White Album’s” 50th anniversary lands on November 22nd so there’s still a strong possibility for the rumors to be true!
