A listing for a book of this name has appeared on Amazon in the UK and US, with a publication date of 15 October 2020.

It would appear to be the first official "Let It Be " 50th anniversary tie-in to have a release date attached, for while the Amazon pages gives little more than title and price, currently £38.21 in the UK and $35.12 in the US (down from $49.99), The Daily Beatle reports that someone interested in knowing more contacted the publisher, Callaway Arts & Entertainment, and was told:

The Beatles Get Back is the authorized story of the making of the "Let it Be" album and the Beatles' break-up, told through exclusive photographs, transcripts of the recording sessions, and an essay by Hanif Kureishi. The book will be the companion to the film directed by Peter Jackson, both released next fall (exact date to be announced).

This has led to some speculation that Jackson's film will miss the 50th anniversary of the original film in May. I don't think this is necessarily so. The book could be timed to coincide with the DVD/Blu-Ray release, for which October would make sense for a film given a May cinema release.

[note: @Joe the Amazon links are straight Amazon links, you may want to edit them so they are Beatle Bible Amazon links and you get your fraction. Please do, would have done it myself but don't know how.]
