Beatles to Rock Again

Unreleased songs are usually unreleased for a reason, but this bears watching: Paul McCartney told the BBC’s Radio 4 that he wants to unveil an avant-garde Beatles song called “Carnival of Light.” The 14-minute track—described by Macca as “adventurous” in the best sense—was recorded in 1967 for an electronic music festival. According to the BBC, the song “is said to include distorted guitar, organ sounds, gargling, and band members shouting phrases such as ‘Barcelona!’ and ‘Are you all right?’” It’s no “Let It Be,” in other words. But McCartney adds, “I like it because it's The Beatles free, going off piste."
