Here Comes The Sun is probably one of the greatest songs ever penned. And 50 years later, it finally got a music video.
As a tribute to the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles’ Abbey Road album, a new music video for the song was released. Reports about the production were released months back. Hence, anticipation for the art skyrocketed over the past couple of weeks. Fortunately, it did not disappoint. And the video is nostalgic at best.
Accordingly, the music video consists of a montage, an animation, and video clips from The Beatles’ heydays. However, it tends to bring out feelings of loss and sadness. Notably, the video starts with an empty stage that resembled The Beatles’ usual set up in the 1960s and 70s. Additionally, despite still having two living members today, no musician figured in the video. Moreover, shadow and silhouettes that resembled Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr loomed in during parts of the video. Towards the end, a video clip of George Harrison can be seen. Apparently, this is an ode to the legendary Guitarist who penned the song. Sadly, Harrison passed away in 2001 due to Lung Cancer.
Here Comes The Sun is the most-streamed Beatles song
Incidentally, Here Comes The Sun figures to be the song the young generations attribute to The Beatles. According to Spotify reports, the song has the highest streaming rate among listeners aged 18-24. Currently, the song has over 350 Million streams. Thus making it the most played song in Beatles’ discography. Hence, it is but fitting that the song gets the music video everybody’s been looking for.
The two surviving Beatle members are still active in the music industry. According to reports from the Abbey Road celebration, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr just recently collaborated on a song in Starr’s new album.
