new Beatles album this summer. really

I've read a couple of bits now on a new Beatles release.
Here's an excert from Rolling Stone:

"New Beatles Recordings to Hit This Summer

An album of previously unheard BEATLES recordings will be released this summer, thirty-six years after the band's breakup. The project will be supervised by PAUL McCARTNEY and RINGO STARR, with the release slated to coincide with a Las Vegas Beatles-themed Cirque de Soleil show. The circus, renowned for their creative acrobatics and set designs, have had unprecedented access to the heavily guarded Beatles catalog, and the show will feature music from the upcoming release. McCartney and Starr -- along with JOHN LENNON's widow YOKO ONO and GEORGE HARRISON's widow OLIVIA -- are collaborating on the production, which will replace SIEGFRIED AND ROY's longstanding act at the Mirage Hotel and Casino."

apparently the recordings are being remixed and remastered under the supervision of George Martin.

extreme awesomeness.

interesting.

1) i thought martin had politely stepped down from doing any kind of remastering or production work due to hearing problems?

2) something about seeing sigfried and roy mentioned in the same paragraph as the beatles creeps me out a little.

from NME:

The Beatles head to Las Vegas
The Fab Four set for casino show

Music by The Beatles is set to feature in a new Las Vegas show.

Songs from the Fab Four are being developed for a theatrical production with cabaret trope Cirque du Soleil and the band's old producer Sir George Martin.

Its understood that the surviving Beatles, Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, are also involved in the project and a selection of new songs and a new album will accompany the production.

"The show involves the creation, by the remixing and remastering of The Beatles' recorded performances, of completely new music, which will be featured in the show, and which should lead to the release of the show album," Apple Corps' Neil Aspinall told the Daily Telegraph.

The idea for a show dates from the late Beatles' guitarist George Harrison who was friends with Cirque de Soleil founder Guy Laliberte, and an opening next summer is expected at at the Mirage Casino.

The Beatles last played in the Las Vegas in 1964.

I don't know... the show and the music aren't really connected, aside from the fact that it will use the new tunes.
What's exciting is that we'll get to hear some new Beatles tracks. That can't be a bad thing.

The problem is that whenever someone comes up saying they have previously unrealesed or unheard Beatles songs is that some of the major Beatle fans have heard them in other variations through the years. This was the case for "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love" back when the Anthology came out. And most of the unrealased Beatles songs are uncomplete or not even worth anyone's time in listening to.

But, I am still looking forward to hearing what they come up with.

Yeah, The Beatles' unreleased material has been given so many looks, I doubt there's anything new worth hearing at this point. No way we're getting another Not Guilty (I still can't BELIEVE this was left off the White Album, while Savoy Truffle made the cut!) or What's the New Mary Jane.

here's a few more tidbits:

Cirque's Beatles show to debut in June
CBC Arts

Cirque du Soleil is set to unveil its latest production – inspired by and featuring the music of the Beatles – this summer...

The idea, first announced in 2004, grew out of conversations between Cirque founder Guy Laliberté and Beatle George Harrison in the late 1990s...

Martin picks music from Abbey Road archives...

Beatles producer George Martin helped shape the show, which drew its musical score from the band's master tape archives at London's Abbey Road Studios.

"After spending more than 40 years of my life working with the Beatles and their wonderful music, I am thrilled to be working with it once again," Martin said in a statement.

On the Cirque website, Martin says that one of the biggest challenges that he and his son Giles (who worked with him on the project) faced was song selection.

"We wanted to make sure there are enough good, solid hit songs in the show, but we don't want it to be a catalogue of 'best of's'. We also wanted to put in some interesting and not well-known Beatles music and use fragments of songs," Martin says.

According to organizers, the production will feature an international cast of 60 artists employed in "aerial performance, extreme sports and urban, freestyle dance."

The new production features a score drawn from the Beatles archive of master tapes at London's Abbey Road Studios. (AP file)
