George Harrison’s iconic 1970 album All Things Must Pass, recorded and released in the wake of The Beatles dissolution, reached its monumental 50th anniversary in November 2020. To celebrate the anniversary, a deluxe, special edition of All Things Must Pass will be released on Aug. 6 via Capitol/UMe.

Harrison’s voluminous range of ideas will now be compiled into 70 tracks, 5 CDs, and 8 LPs which include 42 unreleased demo recordings, session outtakes, and studio jams. While you listen through all of Harrison’s work, you’ll be able to flip through the exclusive All Things Must Pass scrapbook, which is also included in this new edition, that collects archival notes, track-by-track annotation, rare photos, memorabilia, and more. All Things Must Pass 50th Anniversary Edition is available for pre-order here.

Today’s announcement comes hand-in-hand with a video for the previously unreleased and remixed “Run Of The Mill” (Take 36)” which is inspired by elements of Harrison’s home Friar Park and embodies his love of nature. The video was created by Creative Studio Able and directed by Gavin Davis.

Last year, closer to the album’s actual anniversary, Harrison’s estate released a stereo mix of the title track.

Despite the album being wildly successful and Harrison’s affection for it, there are changes he would have made. He wrote in the liner notes for the albums 30th anniversary remaster, released in 2001, “I still like the songs on the album and believe they can continue to outlive the style in which they were recorded,” adding, however, “it was difficult to resist re-mixing every track. All these years later I would like to liberate some of the songs from the big production that seemed appropriate at the time.”

All Things Must Pass has now been completely remixed from the original tapes the 50th anniversary release to fulfill Harrison’s longtime desire. However, we’ll have to wait until August 6 to see exactly what that means.
