To promote the upcoming release of the 2022 reissue of “Revolver”, Apple Corps released the first official video for George Harrison’s track “Taxman“.

From YouTube:

The official video for The Beatles’ “Taxman,” directed by Danny Sangra.

“Taxman” is the first track from the newly remixed and expanded forthcoming Special Edition releases of Revolver. Pre-order now:

The track was recorded across three Studio Two sessions in April and May, 1966. One of three songs on the album by George, in “Taxman” he expresses his frustration with the UK’s ‘super-rich’ tax rate at the time (90%), with a vocal wink to the “Batman” TV theme song.

Get The Beatles’ Revolver into your life with the new mixes and expanded Special Editions. Available everywhere October 28, 2022 across 5CD/4LP Super Deluxe, 2CD Deluxe, Picture Disk, 1LP, 1CD, Download and Streaming. Dolby Atmos Mixes + original mono mix accompany never-before-released session recordings and demos, plus the “Paperback Writer” and “Rain” EP.

The Beatles’ 1966 album Revolver changed everything. Spinning popular music off its axis and ushering in a vibrant new era of experimental, avant-garde sonic psychedelia, Revolver brought about a cultural sea change and marked an important turn in The Beatles’ own creative evolution. With Revolver, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr set sail together across a new musical sea.

Showcasing GRAMMY-winning original album artwork created by Klaus Voormann, the Super Deluxe CD and vinyl house a beautiful book featuring Paul McCartney’s foreword, an introduction by Giles Martin, an enlightening essay by Questlove, and insightful chapters by Kevin Howlett.

From Taxman – Breed (

This is the latest in a series of Beatles-related animated videos Danny has made over the last couple of years, often at the request of George Harrison’s family. And this one is pretty special for him, as he was given the complete trust of the Beatles’ team and the freedom to try out new ideas. You can see the amount of work he’s put into creating something he’s proud of. ‘Taxman’ was written by George Harrison, with a little help from John Lennon, after being told that the individual Beatles were facing bankruptcy due to extremely high taxation.

I was asked to create a music video for The Beatles track ‘Taxman’. As Beatles fan and Revolver being my favourite Beatles album, it was an ideal project. There’s a finite amount of Beatles material. Rather than take away from it, I chose to add to it. My approach was influenced by Yellow Submarine mixed with comics and Saturday morning cartoon shows.
