The Beatles' Story

Something New is the The Beatles' third Capitol release, but fifth American album following the United Artists release of A Hard Day's Night. This album includes eight songs from the original British release of A Hard Day's Night, as well as the remaining tracks "Slow Down" and "Matchbox" from the Long Tall Sally EP and the German release of "I Want to Hold Your Hand". It was released in mono and stereo. The mono release contains alternate versions of "Any Time At All", "I'll Cry Instead" [the "missing" third verse], "When I Get Home", and "And I Love Her" [McCartney's single vocal track].

The album spent nine weeks at #2 on The Billboard 200, behind the United Artists A Hard Day's Night album.

This album was also released on the Parlophone label for sale only on American Armed Forces bases in Europe. These copies have great collector value. The album was also issued in Germany on the Odeon label. The German version contains the unedited version of "And I Love Her", which was later released on the US version of Rarities.

In 2004 this album was released for the first time on CD as part of The Capitol Albums, Volume 1 box set (catalogue number CDP 7243 8 66876 2 3.)
