Mercury Studios, the new multimedia production division of Universal Music Group, has announced an upcoming documentary on world-famous Abbey Road Studios.
The film, If these walls could sing, will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the recording studio and a comprehensive look at its history as part of Abbey Road’s 90th anniversary celebration in November. If these walls could sing is produced by John Battsek (Looking for Sugar Man, Eric Clapton: Life in 12 bars) and directed by Mary McCartney, whose own memories of sharing the studio with her father, Paul McCartney, shaped the documentary.
“Some of my earliest memories as a young child come from time spent at Abbey Road,” she said in a statement. “I have long wanted to tell the story of this historic place, and I couldn’t work with a better team than John and Mercury Studios to make this creative ambition a reality.“
Isabel Garvey, General Manager of Abbey Road Studios, added: “If these walls could sing.” I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard this at Abbey Road Studios over the years. I can’t wait for some of these stories to finally come to life in what will become a timeless documentary.
