Abbey Road will be receiving a 50th anniversary reissue, according to Ringo Starr.

In a new interview with Billboard, Starr that and Abbey Road reissue is in the works, but he did not divulge any release dates. Abbey Road, The Beatles‘ 11th studio album, will mark its 50th anniversary on September 26.

Starr detailed about past-Beatles reissues, “I’ve loved all the re-releases because of the remastering, and you can hear the drums, which got dialed down in the old days. I get a bit fed up, personally, with all those, like, Take 9 or Take 3, the odd takes that we didn’t put out, but that’s part of the box set and you have to do stuff like that. But I’ve always just listened to the record itself, what we put out in the 60s or 1970, and it’s brighter. It’s amazing with Beatles music; We have a billion streams a year now, and every generation still has a listen to us. Far out.”
