In celebration of the 50th anniversary of George Harrison's classic solo album, "All Things Must Pass", a star-studded music video for The Beatles guitarist's classic hit single, "My Sweet Lord" has been released.
Featuring Mark Hamill, Ringo Starr, Rosanna Arquette, Al Yankovic and Rupert Friend amongst others, the music video is a must-watch as it tells the story of special agents who are searching for what can't be seen.
More than forty musicians, actors, comedians, directors and artists appear in the video, which is epic in scope.
The video is written and directed by Lance Bangs who says:
“The approach was to represent the song visually while these agents and inspectors kept missing the metaphysical wonder around them. Images are choreographed to the sounds of vocal melodies, guitar strums, drum patterns, chord changes. George threaded a sense of humor through all of his videos, so we kept that spirit and filled the cast with friends and admirers of his music, many coming from the current comedy landscape. I tracked down vintage prime lenses from some of the films George's HandMade Films had produced, and I hope that viewers can feel a sense of wonder and searching while they watch it, and that the song continues to add to all of our lives.”
The video features a new mix of "My Sweet Lord", which is courtesy of GRAMMY Award-winning engineer Paul Hicks (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, John Lennon).
The album in which the track originally appeared on, "All Things Must Pass", celebrates its 50th anniversary and as such has been reissued on an array of tempting formats including a Super Deluxe Edition box set. All formats can be purchases here.
