The Beatles have released a new animated video for their 1966 classic “Taxman”. The video heralds the arrival of the expanded Special Edition release of the band’s classic “Revolver” album, which hits the shelves on October 28th. 

The animated video for “Taxman” was directed by Danny Sangra, who previously worked with the band on a series of animated birthday messages from “Taxman” writer George Harrison to John, Paul and Ringo. Sangra has also worked on a collaboration between Metallica and Italian shoe brand Brioni. 

The Beatles announced the expanded edition of “Revolver” in July, and released a demo version of “Taxman“. Earlier this month another demo arrived, the first recorded version of “Tomorrow Never Knows”.

The track was recorded across three Studio Two sessions in April and May, 1966. One of three songs on the album by George, in “Taxman” he expresses his frustration with the UK’s ‘super-rich’ tax rate at the time (90%), with a vocal wink to the “Batman” TV theme song.
