The Piano Guys Release New Rendition Of The Beatles' Legendary Hit "Yesterday"

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Inspired by the newly released musical fantasy film Yesterday, THE PIANO GUYS have added their own unique spin to film's namesake, taking on The Beatles' iconic track "Yesterday." Available everywhere now, "Yesterday" features the Fab Four's instantly recognizable melody, newly arranged by The Piano Guys into a highly-original, reggae-tinged track that adds new meaning to the song's legacy.

"This poignant, timeless Beatles melody has always been a favorite of ours," say THE PIANO GUYS. "With this arrangement, we attempted to portray the idea of someone breaking free of melancholy by fondly reminiscing about happier times. The upbeat reggae vibe in the middle section presented an excellent excuse to try out our new melodica (a keyboard that is played by blowing air through a mouthpiece that fits into a hole in the side.)"

"Yesterday" arrives on the heels of The Piano Guys' release of "Avatar (The Theme)," which made its debut last week alongside an out-of-this-world visual filmed at Disney's World of Avatar. Performing the song amongst the floating mountains of Pandora and its bioluminescent rainforest, the new video immerses its viewers in the fantastical world inspired by the James Cameron film and music of composer James Horner - watch here.

Since formally introducing themselves in 2011 on YouTube, THE PIANO GUYS - Steven Sharp Nelson, Jon Schmidt, Al Van der Beek and Paul Anderson - unassumingly arrived as a musical phenomenon. Over the course of five studio records, two Christmas releases, and a fan favorite live album, they have impressively tallied 2 billion-plus global streams, clocked upwards of 1.7 billion YouTube views, earned six No. 1 debuts on the Billboard Top Classical Albums Chart, sold out concerts in almost every corner of the world, averaged nearly 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and attracted a diehard audience. Not to mention, they've appeared in The New York Times, Fast Company, BuzzFeed, Mashable, and People, were featured on CBS Sunday Morning and performed on the TODAY Show, Good Morning America and The Tonight Show.
