After having explored the core classical heritage of the guitar in his three previous albums, Miloš makes a thrilling new departure. He performs dazzling and innovative new arrangements of classic songs by the Beatles, collaborating with celebrated artists from the pop, jazz, world music and classical fields, such as: Tori Amos, Gregory Porter (TBC), Anoushka Shankar, Sergio Assad, Christopher Austin and Steven Isserlis.

Songs include some of the most iconic Beatles hits including Blackbird, Come Together, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Eleanor Rigby & Fool on the Hill.

Miloš's album has several fascinating links with the supergroup. It was recorded in the famous Studio 2 of the Abbey Road Studios (where the Beatles recorded almost all of their songs), using some of the original microphones from the group's sessions, aiming to create the unique and distinctive sound of the album.

"Generally Karadaglić is strongest when he plays solo or accompanied by just a double bass; these pieces have a lived-in quality that reflect the years of study and experimentation Karadaglić put into them. Recommended, and superbly recorded at (natch) Abbey Road Studios." (AllMusic.com)
