Paul and John bring together their different views on life and give birth to one of the great examples of how two geniuses can work together. Noel Gallagher from Oasis described it as «the song that defines The Beatles»…

The Beatles works 11 hours in studio to perfect this single. It's a record for them at the time, even if it will be torn apart when studio marathons become the rule. The result is a song mainly by Paul McCartney (probably inspired by his turbulent relationship with Jane Asher) but which at one point features one of the typical dialogue between him and John Lennon.

«In We Can Work It Out, Paul did the first half, I did the middle eight. But you've got Paul writing, “We can work it out / We can work it out” – real optimistic, y'know, and me, impatient: “Life is very short, and there's no time / For fussing and fighting, my friend.”»

Two very different personalities who manage to create something wonderful when they come together. We Can Work It Out is a perfect example of the two authors collaboration at a depth, so much so that Noel Gallagher from Oasis described it as «the song that defines The Beatles».

This is a socially-distanced cover. In space and time. In fact, filming began in 2013 and ended in a crazy period, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We want to share a message of optimism. With the hope of finally returning, when the health emergency is over, to our live gigs. A thing we miss so much.
