The Beatles Record Their Last Song Before Breaking Up

January 3, 1970

The Beatles record I Me Mine. It was that last new song recorded before their spilt the following April. It was written by George Harrison and released on their 1970 album Let it Be. The lyrics to I Me Mine represented Harrison’s complaint about the stifling egos of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Lennon did not attend the recording session as he and Yoko Ono were on vacation at the time.
The Beatles continued to do studio work together until August, but this was their last new song recorded until 1994 when they recorded the television documentary The Beatles Anthology.
