Rock royalty’s daughter helms ‘love letter to Abbey Road Studios’ in an upcoming film.

Mary McCartney, daughter of rock and roll living legend Paul McCartney, is releasing a new documentary film titled “If These Walls Could Sing.”

McCartney directs the said film that is described as her “personal love letter to Abbey Road Studios.”

Originally named EMI Studios, the studio acquired world renown as the studio where The Beatles recorded most of their music during their time together.

On a Facebook post, Mary’s fascination and admiration for the historic recording studio is rooted in the fact Abbey Road “not only fostered her dad’s creative work but also countless numbers of the most talented artists from around the globe.”

The documentary “tells a passionate story about the world’s first purpose-built recording studio that spans 91 years through interviews with Jimmy Page, Kate Bush, Noel Gallagher, John Williams, Celeste, Elton John, Giles Martin, Shirley Bassey, Liam Gallagher, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney and evenour microphone custodian of over 50 years, Lester Smith, bringing to life the magic that continues to echo with the walls of no. 3 Abbey Road.”

Abbey Road, the place where the studio is located, is immortalized in one of The Beatles’ album covers. The album “Abbey Road” is considered by some as the greatest album ever recorded by a music act.

Mary McCartney said about the upcoming film: “I want to make it an emotional experience as a documentary, rather than doing all the historical points. I didn’t want it to feel like a lesson. I really, really hope the viewer falls in love with it.”

“If These Walls Could Sing” is slated to be shown on Disney+ and is produced by Mercury Studios and Ventureland. The film debuted at Telluride Film Festival.
