Beatles Reportedly To Release Lost Single From '68

Song from Yellow Submarine sessions was said to have been recently unearthed.

The surviving Beatles plan to release a recently unearthed 1968 song featuring

John Lennon on vocals, spokesperson Geoff Baker told Reuters

Monday (May 10).

The song, which Baker was quoted as calling "a real rocker," was

recorded during the sessions for the Beatles' 1969 album Yellow

Submarine. It will be released as a single this summer in its

original form, without remixing, Reuters reported.

The title of the song was not revealed.

The Beatles, who changed the course of music and are widely considered to

be the greatest rock band in history, broke up in 1970. The Liverpool-born

foursome released two new songs in 1995 and 1996, which featured surviving

members Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr adding new backing

tracks to solo recordings by Lennon, who was murdered in 1980.

Those songs, "Free as a Bird" and "Real Love," appeared on the first two

volumes of the Beatles' Anthology series. The soon-to-be-released

song will feature Lennon's vocals from the original recording.
