A brand new Beatles video made its way into the world this weekend. In honor of the release of the new Beatles’ collection On Air – Live at the BBC Volume 2, Apple Corps Ltd. premiered the clip for “Words of Love.” The video features the version of the Beatles’ Buddy Holly cover that appears on the new album, recorded live at the BBC Radio studios a year before the band cut the song for a record.
Mixing whimsical animated segments with vintage black and white and color footage of the Fab Four on stage, in the recording studio and just messing around, the video creates a poignant backdrop for the Beatles’ harmonies.
The follow-up to 1994’s Live at the BBC, the new compilation features 63 recordings made in the early- and mid-1960s, including 23 dialogue tracks. The two-disc set was released on November 12th by Capitol Records. The rising tide of Beatlemania will continue in February when the Grammy Awards present a 2-hour special commemorating the 50th anniversary of the band’s landmark appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
