Last Friday 26th May marked 50 years since The Beatles released their Grammy Award winning eighth studio album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in the UK**.

Recorded in London’s legendary Abbey Road studio, the album produced some of the most popular tracks ever released by The Beatles, including With a Little Help from My Friends, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ and ‘A Day in the Life’, and became one of the most iconic albums – and album covers – in recorded music history.

To celebrate the original launch of the album in 1967, Spotify has compiled a list of statistics on The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper on Spotify.
