The cast of 'Glee' will be tackling some fine classic tracks by The Beatles in a two-episode tribute special.
Yesterday and Help are among the Beatles chestnuts to be tackled on the popular show.
Glee returns for its fifth season with a musical tribute to British pop icon The Beatles, and now details are being revealed about the two-part homage to the Fab Four.
Columbia Records said that it will release a soundtrack for the Glee Beatles episodes – dubbed Glee Sings The Beatles – on Sept 24, two days before the Sept 26 Glee season premiere in the United States.
Along with the announcement came a treasure trove of details about the episodes. The first episode, Love, Love, Love, finds the New Directions crew assigned with tackling the Beatles songbook, as Blaine and Kurt attempt to answer questions about their future together.
Meanwhile, Rachel’s New York ambitions take an unexpected turn. On Oct 3, the second episode – dubbed Tina In The Sky With Diamonds – will chronicle Tina’s bid for prom queen, as she alienates her biggest supporters with her fierce attitude.
Meanwhile in New York, Rachel and Santana take jobs at a Broadway diner in order to make ends meet.
Incidentally, Glee, which has sold more than 55 million tracks and 13 million albums worldwide, has surpassed The Beatles to set a record for most songs charted on the Billboard Hot 100 by a single act.
Here’s the track listing for Glee Sings The Beatles:
