In February 2020 RecLab Studios enters its 11th year of activity, marking over 600 productions. To celebrate this important achievement, producer Larsen Premoli thought it appropriate to pay a homage to the Beatles and completely re-record “Let it Be”, the elevent album recorded by the British band and undisputed milestone in the history of pop-rock and music in general, originally recorded in January 1969 and published on 8th May 1970. With the intent of starting a project of distinctive artistic profile, to re-create the work of Beatles the Milanese independent producer decided to summon a top-team of 73 musicians who collaborated with RecLab throughout its 11 years up until today.
This giant group is called…

Officially started at RecLab Studios on September 12st 2019 with the recording of drum tracks. Recording of all other tracks took until Christmas. Then a meticulous post-production on fine vintage equipment was carried out. The tracks have been recorded following precisely the timeline of the original album. While much room was left for the interpretation of the parts by the artists, according to their language and individuality, arrangements instead follow the originals faithfully, inspired by the Naked version published in 2011, without the extra-orchestral and choirs arrangements added by Phil Spector in the original version published in 1970.
