Watch 'Yesterday' star Himesh Patel perform at Abbey Road

With the films set to hit theaters in two weeks, Universal Pictures has released a very special performance from star Himesh Patel, recorded at Abbey Road Studios on the 54th anniversary of The Beatles’ legendary session. Check it out in the player below!

Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal.

Jack Malik (Patel) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James, “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”). Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.

Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Emmy winner Kate McKinnon), Jack’s fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie — the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.

Featuring new versions of The Beatles’ most beloved hits, “Yesterday” is produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (“Love Actually,” “About A Boy,” the “Bridget Jones” series) alongside Matthew James Wilkinson and Bernie Bellew. Curtis and Boyle also produce. Nick Angel and Lee Brazier serve as executive producers.

Look for “Yesterday” to hit the big screen June 28.
