If Paul McCartney gets his way, a previously unreleased 14-minute experimental track recorded 41 years ago may finally see the light of day.

Around the time this track was recorded, the band was pushing the boundaries of pop music with increasingly inventive releases like Rubber Soul, Revolver and Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band. The Beatles were constantly seeking new sounds by using unconvential instruments and new recording techniques.

I don’t know what their reasons are for keeping this track private for so long, but I think it’s time for it to be heard.

It’s unlikely to garner the accolades of Brian Wilson’s belated release of Smile. Smile was the product of Wilson tirelessly working to create a masterpiece, and this Beatles project seems like the guys were just having a little bit of fun. 

The tension has built up for long enough. Let us hear it already.
