Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’ Has Sold Nearly a Million Copies Before Release (EXCLUSIVE) Taylor Swift has not given up on the full-length album as an indicator of success as well as art form, and judging from pre-release sales for “Lover,” which comes out Friday, her belief in the ongoing viability of the format is not in vain. “The anticipation of this album is extraordinary, with pre-sales quickly approaching one million copies globally,” Monte Lipman, founder and chairman of Republic Records, tells Variety. Swift’s previous album, 2017’s “Reputation,” was the last album to sell a million copies in the U.S.

Rock historian Mark Lewisohn, the author of "The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions" who is known as one of the most trusted Beatles experts in the world, gave The Guardian early access to the tape, which was recorded 50 years ago this week, 2 weeks before "Abbey Road" was released.

On September 8, 1969, the Fab Four (with the exception of Ringo Starr, who was in hospital at the time), met at Apple Records HQ on Savile Row in London for one of the last times before their breakup, and the entire encounter was captured on John Lennon's tape recorder.

Official: Taylor Swift's 'Lover' Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart With 867,000 Units Earned in First Week in U.S. Taylor Swift’s new album, 'Lover,' blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with the biggest week for any album since her last release, 'reputation,' in 2017.

In newly unearthed audio from 1969, the Beatles ' principal songwriters discuss plans for a follow-up to their final LP, ' Abbey Road .' “The books have always told us that they knew Abbey Road was their last album and they wanted to go out on an artistic high. But no – they ’re discussing the next album .

Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by the English rock band the Beatles , released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records.

According to The Guardian, the audio starts with Lennon saying: "Ringo - you can't be here, but this is so you can hear what we're discussing."

Having just wrapped up the recording of "Abbey Road," their final recorded studio album (though "Let it Be" was the last to be released), the group then go on to talk about their plans to make another album, with Lennon proposing that each of them suggest songs that could be used for the single.

He also suggests he, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison should get four songs each, with two from Starr "if he wants them."

It has previously been thought that Lennon was integral to the breakup of the Beatles, but the tape suggests that, at least at this point in their history, that was not entirely the case.

Speaking of the tape, Lewisohn told The Guardian: "It's a revelation. The books have always told us that they knew Abbey Road was their last album and they wanted to go out on an artistic high. But no - they're discussing the next album. And you think that John is the one who wanted to break them up but, when you hear this, he isn't. Doesn't that rewrite pretty much everything we thought we knew?"

All down the line, people have liked my songs."

The newly uncovered tape is a part of Lewisohn's upcoming stage show Hornsey Road, which will see him tell the story of "Abbey Road" 50 years on using tape, film, photos, new audio mixes of the music, and his own anecdotes and memorabilia.

In it, the historian will seek to change the perception that the Beatles were at odds throughout 1969.

"They were in an almost entirely positive frame of mind," he said of their time recording "Abbey Road."

"They had this uncanny ability to leave their problems at the studio door - not entirely, but almost."
