Considered as one of the prime catalogs by the Beatles, Abbey Road has made a mark in the industry with some of the most mature and developed music of the time. Now, in conjunction with its 50th-anniversary celebration, Abbey Road has been reissued, and even managed to top the charts again with the new release.

The album and band set a new world record for getting back at the top of the charts since it first did, 49 years and 252 days ago. Officially recognized by Guinness World Records, Abbey Road reached the top again after its stellar 17-week performance that ended on January 31, 1970.

This isn’t the first time the world saw a Beatles record being reinstated at the top though, as Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band also topped the charts again way back in 2017, after an equally amazing 49 years and 125 days.

Former Beatle Paul McCartney shared his thoughts with the reissue’s performance, saying, “It’s hard to believe that Abbey Road still holds up after all these years. But then again, it’s a bloody cool album.”

The 50th anniversary reissue is a mix of the original tracklist, as well as unreleased demos and session recordings, and was produced by Giles Martin and engineered by Sam Okell.
