Paul McCartney has announced the release of a new photobook called 1964: Eyes of the Storm. It includes photographs taken by the musician himself and never before published. NME writes about it.
All photographs date from late 1963 – early 1964. It was then that Beatlemania began in the UK, and The Beatles gained worldwide fame after their first trip to the United States.
The book is McCartney’s personal account of this period. He has filmed in six cities: Liverpool, London, Paris, New York, Washington DC and Miami. Fans will see numerous never-before-seen portraits of John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.
“Anyone who rediscovers a personal heirloom or family treasure is instantly filled with memories and emotions, which then evoke associations buried in the mists of time,” McCartney said in a statement.
The idea to publish 1964: Eyes of the Storm was born back in 2020, when almost a thousand photographs taken by Paul McCartney with a 35mm camera were discovered.
Previously, Paul McCartney sang a duet of the 1970 song “I’ve Got A Feeling” with former Beatles bandmate John Lennon at the Glastonbury Music Festival. A video of him was projected on screens around the stage.
