Watch the Beatles’ New Video for the ‘Love’ Version of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Cirque du Soleil's Beatles show Love, a new video has been made for the group's 1968 song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." You can watch it above.
The new video -- directed by Dandypunk, André Kasten and Leah Moyer -- for “While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Love Version)" was created for the 10th anniversary of The Beatles Love by Cirque du Soleil, the hit show that features the troupe performing to more than two dozen classic Beatles songs. It's playing at the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
In the clip, performer Eira Glover interacts with illustrations via projection mapping. The entire video was captured live on camera, with no post-production CGI, as a stripped-down arrangement of George Harrison's song, originally included on the White Album, plays out. The track, heavy on strings, was mixed by George Martin for the 2006 album Love, a soundtrack to the Curque du Soleil show. The remixed Beatles tracks were among the late producer's final works.
The Love show opened on June 30, 2006; the album arrived in November of that year, and went on to win a pair of Grammy Awards. Love recently joined other Beatles records -- including their entire catalog of studio albums and the three Anthology collections -- on streaming services. Since their streaming debut six months ago, the band has been played more than one billion times.
