To honor the 50th anniversary of Abbey Road, the band will release a "super deluxe edition" of the album, according to Rolling Stone.

The Fab Four's last recorded album will get a 50th anniversary deluxe edition in September 2019.

Beatles lookalike band the Fab Four were joined by fans of the group on Thursday, halting traffic in the process.

The gathering came as it was announced the album is getting a special re-release to mark its 50th anniversary.

At The End of their meal, diners can order Something else to satisfy their Beatles craving; the Abbey Road Brownie. You can also hear an early mix of Abbey Road's legendary "Side 2 Medley" with Paul McCartney's ditty Her Majesty in its original place slap bang in the middle between Mean Mr Mustard and Polythene Pam.

Kerala rains: Kochi airport operation suspended
In the worst-affected Wayanad district, about 40 people were feared trapped under the debris of a landslide in Meppadi. Kerala received 155 mm (6.1 inches) of rain on Friday, ten times more than average, weather department data showed.

The striking dessert is inspired by the classic image of The Beatles crossing Abbey Road, with alternating white and milk chocolate brownies mimicking the zebra crossing, an icing sugar stencil of the band. Many others sang the band's songs and celebrated the legacy of one of the most loved and popular bands ever. That version comes with the new 40-tracks album spread across 3 CDs, along with a Blu-ray disc (which features mixes in Dolby Atmos and 5.1 surround), and a 100-page hardbound book featuring an introduction by Martin, in-depth chapters by Beatles historian Kevin Howlett, track-by-track details, and more.

The book is illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photographs, including many taken by Sir Paul's late wife Linda McCartney, never before published images of handwritten lyrics, sketches, and a George Martin score.

The Beatles - Abbey Road super deluxe edition.

An Octopus's Garden of colour, the floral display will be entwined with vibrant vinyl discs honouring the leading tracks from the album.
