"New" Beatles Track in Film

Unearthed "Sgt. Pepper" song to be used in soundtrack

By |

A fourteen-minute Beatles song from the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band sessions will be used in the soundtrack to an upcoming film based on pictures taken of the band by Linda McCartney. According to the London Times, "Carnival of Light" is a largely instrumental track punctuated by church organ music. Paul McCartney had reportedly wanted to include the song on one of the Anthology albums, but the idea was nixed by George Harrison.

Now the song will play behind a "photofilm" that includes more than 4,000 pictures of the Beatles snapped by Linda McCartney between 1967 and 1970. There are as yet no confirmed release plans for the film.
