Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans – Beatles vs. Star Wars (Mashup-Album)

Die Palette-Swap Ninja haben zum 40. Geburtstag von Star Wars und dem 50. des legendären „Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band“ der Beatles ein Mashup-Album mit genialen Lyrics vorgelegt, sprich die Songs der Beatles auf „A New Hope“ umgetextet. Das Konzeptalbum gibts im Stream auf Soundcloud, als Gratis-Download (320kbps MP3 und FLAC) und als Lyric-Video-Playlist auf YouTube.

This year marks two important pop-culture milestones: The 40th anniversary of Star Wars on May 25, and the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band a week later, June 1. Our new album merges both into one full-length concept album titled Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans. It’s the entire Beatles album as accurately as we could record it, only now it tells the story of Star Wars: A New Hope — in order. We sweat the details on both sides in an effort to do both cultural milestones justice. Writing hyper-specific lyrics that match the original songs’ cadences; reverse-engineering everything the Beatles recorded, from distorted saxophone riffs to Indian tabla rhythms; recording everything from scratch and learning as we went — well, that’s what takes five years.
