The Beatles’ ‘LOVE’ album and ‘All Together Now,’ the feature-length documentary about the making of The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil, will make their worldwide digital debuts this month exclusively on the iTunes Store.
Both titles are available for pre-order on iTunes in most countries. ‘LOVE’ will be released on iTunes worldwide Feb. 8 and ‘All Together Now’ will follow soon after.
The ‘LOVE’ album (US $12.99) includes exclusive, previously-unreleased ‘LOVE’ versions of “The Fool on the Hill” and “Girl,” and comes as an iTunes LP featuring an art gallery that blends images of the Beatles with photos from the acclaimed stage production.
‘LOVE’ will also be available to purchase and download as individual songs.

The ‘All Together Now’ documentary (US $12.99 HD) will be offered with iTunes Extras including the 84-minute film, three bonus featurettes and a trailer for the ‘LOVE’ stage production, and is also available to rent.
‘LOVE,’ a Cirque du Soleil creation and co-production with The Beatles’ company, Apple Corps Ltd., celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles and is presented exclusively at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
This joint artistic venture, born from the personal friendship between George Harrison and Guy Laliberte, marks the first time that Apple Corps Ltd. has agreed to a major theatrical partnership.
To create the lush soundscape for ‘LOVE,’ producers Sir George Martin and Giles Martin worked with the entire archive of Beatles master recordings at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios.
The GRAMMY-winning ‘All Together Now’ documentary, directed by Adrian Wills, and its bonus features detail the story behind the partnership between The Beatles and Cirque du Soleil that resulted in the creation and launch of ‘LOVE.’
