Bad news if you want to hear the all-new remixed version of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in the flesh: tickets to the “immersive experience” in the band’s native Liverpool are already sold out.
The good news, however, is that the remix – in the Dolby Atmos format – is also being made available to stream globally. For now, it’s only on one service, Amazon Music HD, which is one of the first to support Dolby Atmos. However, Universal Music’s press release announcing this promised that there will be “further services to follow in 2020”.
The remix is the work of Giles Martin, son of the original Beatles producer George Martin, and a longtime collaborator on remasters and new mixes of the band’s work.
“Experiencing this Dolby Atmos mix allows us to fall into the record and to totally immerse ourselves in the fantastical world that was so beautifully created at Abbey Road Studios over 50 years ago,” promised Martin.
