The Beatles From Us To You

 

Something New was The Beatles third Capitol LP release, but fifth American album following the United Artists release of A Hard Day's Night. This album includes eight songs from the original British release of A Hard Day's Night, as well as the remaining tracks “Slow Down” and “Matchbox” from the Long Tall Sally EP and the German-language version of “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” It was released in mono and stereo, and all mono mixes of the five songs duplicated from the United Artists soundtrack album are the same. This was the first Capitol Beatles album with all of the tracks in "true" stereo. The mono release contains alternative versions of “Any Time At All” (a different mix during the instrumental bridge), “I'll Cry Instead” (with the “missing” third verse), “When I Get Home” (the line “Till I walk out that door again” during the song's bridge has a different vocal passage from the UK mono mix), and “And I Love Her” (McCartney's non-double-tracked vocal).

The album spent nine weeks at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, behind the United Artists A Hard Day's Night album.
