About

From Wikipedia:

Backed with Harrison’s “Old Brown Shoe”, the single was released in the United Kingdom on 30 May 1969; Lennon and Ono were performing a second Bed-In at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal at the time. The United States release followed a few days later on 4 June.

In the UK and Europe, it was the first Beatles single to be released in stereo. It was therefore the first release not given a mono mix.
