08/05/1970 The Beatles release "Let It Be"

“Let it Be” is the Beatles’ final studio album after they gave up touring. It was released almost a month after their break-up and was conceived as a return to the their less complicated approach to music. Like most of the band's previous releases, it was a number one album in many countries, including both the US and the UK, and was released in tandem with the motion picture of the same name.
