The rock royalty’s daughter is leading a ‘love letter to Abbey Road Studios’ in an upcoming film.
Mary McCartney, daughter of living rock and roll legend Paul McCartney, is releasing a new documentary film titled ‘If These Walls Could Sing’.
McCartney is directing the film which is described as his “personal love letter to Abbey Road Studios”.
Originally named EMI Studios, the studio gained worldwide fame as the studio where the Beatles recorded most of their music during their time together.
In a Facebook post, Mary’s fascination and admiration for the historic recording studio is rooted in the fact that Abbey Road “not only encouraged her father’s creative work, but also countless artists from most talented in the whole world”.
The documentary “tells a passionate story about the world’s first purpose-built recording studio spanning 91 years through interviews with Jimmy Page, Kate Bush, Noel Gallagher, John Williams, Celeste, Elton John, Giles Martin, Shirley Bassey, Liam Gallagher, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney and even our mic keeper for over 50 years, Lester Smith, bringing to life the magic that continues to resonate on the walls of No. 3 Abbey Road.
Abbey Road, where the studio is located, is immortalized on one of the Beatles album covers. The album “Abbey Road” is considered by some to be the greatest album ever recorded by a musical group.
Mary McCartney said of the upcoming film, “I want to make it an emotional experience as a documentary, rather than doing all the historical points. I didn’t want it to feel like a lesson. I really, really hope the viewer will fall in love with it.
“If These Walls Could Sing” is set to stream on Disney+ and is produced by Mercury Studios and Ventureland. The film debuted at the Telluride Film Festival.
