The Beatles have hit fans with more news as two of their classic albums are due to be newly remixed and expanded this month.
Those who love the Fab Four will be familiar with 1962-1966 and 1967-1970, widely known as the ‘Red’ and ‘Blue’ albums.
The two albums are due to be expanded and remixed and will be released on 10 November, just as Christmas approaches.
This comes as emotional Beatles fans broke down on Thursday as they heard their ‘last ever song’ Now And Then for the first time.
The band’s ‘masterpiece’ new and final song sung by John Lennon and debuted on the BBC and YouTube after 45 years in the making.

The song – which is the latest release from the band since ‘Real Love’ in 1996 – will also be included in the newly remixed albums.
Giles Martin, who is the son of original Beatles producer George Martin, spoke to Variety about the refreshed albums and new song release.
‘You know, we live in such a sh**** time right now, in all honesty. And it’s quite nice to think about something else. That’s what music should be there for.

‘It’s not some sort of cynical marketing exercise to try and push catalog sales. I think Paul just misses John and he wants to work on a song with him. It’s just as simple as that,’ Giles told the outlet.
Now And Then was posted on the Fab Four’s YouTube account and it has racked up 12million views in just one day.
43 years after Lennon’s death – and more than two decades on from George Harrison’s passing – The Beatles have came together with the help of AI and audio tech.
Now And Then, written and sung by John in 1977, features acoustic and electric guitar played by George in 1995.
Sir Paul McCartney completed the bass and Sir Ringo Starr recorded the drums in the last year.
Sir Paul said finishing his friend’s lost love song felt like the Fab Four were all back together again, declaring today: ‘To still be working on Beatles music in 2023. Wow. It’s probably the last Beatles song, and we have all played on it so it is a genuine Beatles recording. Every time I thought, say I had a chance to ask John: “Hey John, would you like us to finish this last song of yours?” I’m telling you, I know the answer would have been: “Yeah”.’
Now And Then is a Lennon demo from the 70s that McCartney, Harrison and Starr attempted to ‘finish’ – just like Free As A Bird and Real Love.
However, according to Super Deluxe Edition Free As A Bird and Real Love are not going to feature on the revised Blue Album.
Lovers of The Beatles took to the comments to discuss the new song, with some saying they ‘couldn’t stop the tears.’

One commented: ‘Wow, this video hit me hard. It’s incredible how after all these years, The Beatles still manage to get a grown man to tear up.
‘Been a hardcore fan since I was 8, and here I am, nearly 55, still getting those same chills.’
Another penned: ‘This is powerful because it feels like the final goodbye of the most influential rock band that ever existed.
‘Paul and Ringo closing the circle with the permission of their pals. Quite a unique moment…’
A third said: ‘I can’t stop the tears. Thank you, Paul and Ringo, for taking me back to some of the best times of my life.’
A fourth wrote: ‘Simply stunning, a masterpiece that invokes such emotion. Thank you so much for making this.
‘The Beatles will be here for so many future generations to enjoy and relive their music once more. What a journey.’
On Thursday when Now And Then was released, listening parties were held all over the world, including in their home city of Liverpool at The Cavern Club and the Liverpool Beatles Museum.
Tears were shed as the song played. Liam Gallagher tweeted: ‘Now n Then absolutely incredible biblical celestial heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time long live The Beatles LG x’.
