The Beatles releasing "Yellow Submarine" picture-disc single in honor of film's 50th anniversary
Written by Classic Rock 93.9 on May 30, 2018
As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations for The Beatles‘ 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine, a limited-edition seven-inch vinyl picture disc featuring the movie’s title track will be released on Friday, July 6.
The disc also will feature “Eleanor Rigby” on the B-side, thereby recreating the single the Fab Four issued in August of 1966. Both tracks were originally included on the 1966 Beatles album Revolver as well.
The picture disc will boast images of the Yellow Submarine and cartoon likenesses of the band’s members taken from the recently restored version of the film. The single will be housed in a sleeve boasting a circular cutout to show the image appearing on the disc.
You can pre-order the “Yellow Submarine” picture disc now at TheBeatlesStore.com.
As previously reported, the restored version of the Yellow Submarine movie will be screened at theaters across the U.S. this July in honor of the 50th anniversary. Visit YellowSubmarine.film for more details.
