If These Walls Could Sing
A new documentary about Abbey Road Studios is currently in development, with Mary McCartney set to direct.
If These Walls Could Sing is set to be the first feature-length documentary about the legendary studios, produced by Mercury Studios which forms part of the Universal Music Group.
McCartney, a photographer and filmmaker as well as the daughter of one Paul McCartney, speaks of her “personal perspective” in a press release describing the upcoming film, set to be produced by John Battsek (Eric Clapton: Life In 12 Bars).
McCartney said in the press release –
“Some of my earliest memories as a young child come from time spent at Abbey Road,”
“I’ve long wanted to tell the story of this historic place and I couldn’t be collaborating with a better team than John and Mercury Studios to make this creative ambition a reality.”
Isabel Garvey, Managing Director of Abbey Road Studios, said –
“If these walls could sing. I have lost count how many times I’ve heard that said 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.”
If These Walls Could Sing is set to be part of the 90th-Anniversary celebrations of Abbey Road Studios, beginning in November this year.
