It is the 11th studio album by The Beatles, released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records. It was an immediate commercial success reaching #1 in the UK and US.
The album’s iconic cover, which features the four band members walking across a zebra crossing outside Abbey Road Studios, has become one of the most famous and imitated images in the history of popular music.
