Former Beatle Paul McCartney has recreated the Fab Four's famous walk across the zebra crossing on Abbey Road.

The original walk by John Paul, George and Ringo is immortalised on the front cover of The Beatles' Abbey Road album, named after the studios where they made most of their legendary recordings.

McCartney's recreation of the event took place on Monday, nearly 49 years after the release of the album, and was posted for posterity on Instagram on his account and the one belonging to McCartney’s daughter, Mary.

Another of his  daughters, Stella, was also present with family friend Liv Tyler, while the twitter account for Abbey Road Studios republished Mary's video and teased: "Discover what he’s been up to very soon."

According to Billboard, McCartney was recording a "secret show" that debuted four new songs from his upcoming Egypt Station album: Fuh (cq) You, Who CaresConfidante, and Come On To Me.

The latter song was performed by McCartney while filming James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke segment for his The Late Late Show.

The show was put on by Spotify in Studio 2 - a legendary place in terms of The Beatles - and was recorded for a later broadcast date. Egypt Station will be released on September 7.
