The Beatles Singles Collection will be released on November 22, 2019.
Good. Something I don’t have or want to buy so won’t have to spend a fortune.
Will an EP collection follow in a year or two and the bbc releases from the 90’s will be on there - tho they were singles not eps despite having four tracks - or are Apple ignoring those?
I look forward to the announcement of the 'Movie Medley' as an exclusive bonus single if ordered from the Apple store.

The Dairy Cottage, 120a Allerton Road, Woolton is to be opened as an AirBnB, the Liverpool Echo reports.
This is a lovely home, that looks like the mirror from an old vanity on the wall. When I see those it's instant childhood for me, all my older relatives had vanities, obviously a popular design. You still see them in 2nd hand furniture places but the mirrors are harder to find now, often it's just the dresser part.

Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe. This has been true for 2016 & 2017 but I may have to get more specific in the future.

From The Beatles facebook page:
Robert Freeman, long time photographer of The Beatles, has passed away.
Robert created some of the most iconic images of the band, and were featured on the album covers of With The Beatles , A Hard Day's Night , Beatles For Sale , HELP! and Rubber Soul . Long will they be loved, discussed, appreciated - and continue to inspire other photographers.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends, along with our appreciation and gratitude for the creative work he produced for the band.
Rest in peace Robert - your iconic artwork lives on.

Oh dear. The Beatles' canon wouldn't have the iconic looks that it does without him. RIP

...and the Beatlesbible Forum would be a much lesser place without all those AHDN smileys that originated in his viewfinder.
R.I.P., Mr. Freeman

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Sad news indeed.
While Paul commented on his website:
Dear Robert Freeman has passed away. He was one of our favourite photographers during the Beatles years who came up with some of our most iconic album covers. Besides being a great professional he was imaginative and a true original thinker. People often think that the cover shot for Meet The Beatles of our foreheads in half shadow was a carefully arranged studio shot. In fact it was taken quite quickly by Robert in the corridor of a hotel we were staying in where natural light came from the windows at the end of the corridor. I think it took no more than half an hour to accomplish.
Bob also took the Rubber Soul cover; his normal practice was to use a slide projector and project the photos he'd taken onto a piece of white cardboard which was exactly album sized, thus giving us an accurate idea of how the finished product would look. During his viewing session the card which had been propped up on a small table fell backwards giving the photograph a 'stretched' look. Instead of simply putting the card upright again we became excited at the idea of this new version of his photograph. He assured us that it was possible to print it this way and because the album was titled Rubber Soul we felt that the image fitted perfectly.
I will miss this wonderful man but will always cherish the fond memories I have of him.
RIP Robert Freeman (5 December 1936 - 7 November 2019)

Many can take a nice photo in a studio, but turning a half-hour hotel corridor shoot into an album cover for the ages -- now that's creativity and talent.

It has been confirmed that Paul is headlining the 50th Anniversary Glastonbury Festival in 2020:
Paul confirmed it this morning with a cryptic tweet consisting of three pictures:
Phillip Glass, Emma Stone, Chuck Berry...
Emily Eavis later confirmed in more traditional form, saying,
Having Paul McCartney coming back to headline the Pyramid for the second time next year is an absolute dream come true.
The news has come as a big surprise...

The Glastonbury Festival returns this year after a fallow year, however it is the 2020 Glastonbury Festival, the 50th Anniversary, that is attracting attention.
Emily Eavis, who largely runs the festival now, recently revealed that two of the biggest names had already been booked to headline. Her father, Michael Eavis, seemed to let slip in an interview with BBC Somerset that one of them may be Paul.
In the interview, ME commented that, "Paul's on good form at the moment."
Asked, "Coming here?" ME replied, "Hopefully for the 50th," before quickly adding, "Don't make a big thing of it though, will you?"
So, did ME confirm Paul's returning to Glastonbury for a second time?
I was there when he headlined in 2004, one of the great Paul live experiences, so "Hopefully" indeed!
Seems Glastonbury is looking like a definite maybe for Paul next year.
Talking to the BBC, he has said:
People are saying that it would be good if I did it, so I'm starting to think about whether I can or whether it would be a good thing.
My kids are saying "Dad we've got to talk about Glastonbury," and I think I know what they mean.
It's starting to become some remote kind of possibility. It's definitely not fixed yet but people are starting to talk about it.
