The 46-song set spans from 1962’s “Love Me Do”/”P.S. I Love You” — presented here with its original U.S. sleeve — to 1970’s “Let It Be”/”You Know My Name (Look Up the Number).” The Beatles Anthology tracks “Free as a Bird”/”Real Love” also both exclusively make their 7″ debut in The Singles Collection.

Due out November 22nd and available to preorder now, the collections features 23 180-gram 7″ vinyl singles featuring artwork as they originally appeared in 23 different nations: “She Loves You” from the Greece market, the “Paperback Writer” paper sleeve from Turkey, “Eleanor Rigby” from Argentina, etc.


The Singles Collections also houses a 40-page booklet packed with photos, ephemera and detailed essays by Beatles historian Kevin Howlett.
