MTV Go Behind The Scenes At Abbey Road Studios!
Google is giving you the chance to see inside the world famous recording house...
Giles Martin, the son of legendary Beatles producer, Sir George Martin, helped launch the project and is also a guide on the tour, said:
"This collaboration with Google gives the outside world a great insight into the everyday workings of the studio and allows anyone to glimpse the magic that goes on inside the world's most famous recording studio."
Ahead of the big unveiling, MTV took an exclusive sneak peak behind the walls of the historic studio, where music royalty have recorded and produced for decades.
Approaching the studios, you pass the Abbey Road zebra crossing, made famous by The Fab Four's 1969 album of the same name – the crossing alone attracts around 500,000 visitors a year.
The gated entrance leading up to the north London set is covered in graffiti from tourists and fans. As the studios are regularly in use by artists and big-budget film orchestras, access is restricted.
The building is made up of three main rooms, we’re taken to Studio Three where BRIT winner, Sam Smith debuted his track ‘Not In That Way’ during his 2014 Abbey Road session. Taking a step back in time, it’s also where a majority of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon was made.
The complex is home to the famous ‘mirror room’, which features on the cover of Tony Bennett and the late Amy Winehouse’s collaborative album, Body and Soul, and is just one of the endless facts you learn touring the studio.
The virtual guide completely opens up the building and it's history, both past and present, including snippets of Jay-Z’s 2013 interview with Zane Lowe, a performance from Bastille and the chance to experiment with real recording equipment used at the studio.
