In honour of the legendary studio’s 90th birthday, Mary McCartney is releasing a documentary on Abbey Road Studios stacked with behind-the-scenes footage and in-depth history.
Titled If These Walls Could Sing, the documentary is set for release this November, just in time for the studio’s 90th-anniversary celebration.
Mercury Studios announced the film, offering a behind-the-scenes glance into the iconic venue, an extensive look at its history, and its rise to fame.
“Some of my earliest memories as a young child come from time spent at Abbey Road,” McCartney said in a statement.
“I’ve long wanted to tell the story of this historic place, and I couldn’t be collaborating with a better team than John and Mercury Studios to make this creative ambition a reality.”

Managing director of Abbey Road Studios, Isabel Garvey added: “’if these walls could sing.’ I have lost count of how many times I’ve heard that said at Abbey Road Studios over the years. I can’t wait for some of these stories to finally come to life in what will become a timeless documentary.”
