Buzz: The Beatles Have Something Planned for the Upcoming 50th Anniversary of ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’

Written by: Rock Cellar Magazine Staff

Back in 1967, the Beatles released what would become one of the most legendary and iconic albums in the history of music: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

On June 1, the album will celebrate its 50th anniversary, and it would appear as though something special is in the works — judging by this image shared by the Beatles’ social media pages on Friday:

Those with an innate familiarity with the album’s artwork will notice that that specific arrangement of colors corresponds to the outfits worn by John, Ringo, Paul, and George in the image:

Of course, two timeless Beatles songs that were infamously released as a double A-side rather than be included on the album were “Penny Lane” and “Strawberry Fields Forever,” a decision that was made after some influence by EMI. Might whatever is in store for the album’s anniversary include a reissue with those tracks included? Who knows…

Liverpool, a city very close to the Beatles in just about every way possible, is planning its own elaborate celebration of the classic album, too.

Stay tuned! This mystery will most likely have a resolution soon.

    What wonderful news to know that the two songs that were not included will be finally included in the LP.
    That is, i hope Sgt, Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,
    will be issued in LP form as well as CD.
    Either way, great news indeed.

    l’ve wondered, like other Beatle fans, for many years where ‘Strawberry Fields’ & ‘Penny Lane’would have been in the track sequence. Hopefully they’ll be added to the anniversary LP.

    Oh Wow this is Almost as Ground Breaking as trump bringing back Coal! First let me say that I Love the Beatles but this is Yet another way to get us Baby Boomers to buy our 3rd or 4th version of Sgt Peppers – Ka-Ching – does Olivia, Yoko or Ringo need any more $$$ because certainly Paul McCartney doesn’t! If Ringo & Paul want to Remember the Spirit of this Great Album why don’t they donate all the proceeds to Charity?

    I’ve heard one plan,but whether or not it is real,they shouldn’t consider messing with the track list.

    People: This is all conjecture. Nobody has announced anything about anything. Don’t spread rumors.
