The surviving members of rock legends THE Beatles are releasing a new version of their last ever album, LET IT BE - with a different name.

Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have spent months working on the album, which includes classics LONG AND WINDING ROAD and GET BACK - and are promising an entirely new sound for fans.

The pair have stripped back the Wall Of Sound effect put on the LP by producer Phil Spector, so just the Fab Four themselves can be heard.

The new release - called LET IT BE NAKED - will be in shops in October (03).

An excited Ringo reveals, "It's coming out as the new CD, the cleaned-up one.

"We're rolling back the Phil Spector part of the CD so that you can hear just the band. I've heard it and it's great."

Let It Be was originally released in 1970, shortly before The Beatles split for good.
