Something New (1964)

Something New is The Beatles (issued, 20 July 1964) third Capitol LP release - in addition - being the fifth American album for the four piece (following the United Artists release of A Hard Day's Night). This 1964 US release includes eight songs from the original British release of A Hard Day's Night, as well as the remaining tracks "Slow Down" and "Matchbox" from the Long Tall Sally EP and the German-language version of "I Want to Hold Your Hand".

The album was released in both mono and stereo versions, and of which all mono mixes of the five songs duplicated from the United Artists soundtrack album are the same. Something New was the only early Capitol Beatles album to contain all tracks in true stereo. The mono release contains alternative versions of "Any Time At All" (a different mix during the instrumental bridge), "I'll Cry Instead" (with the "missing" third verse), "When I Get Home" (the line "Till I walk out that door again" during the song's bridge has a different vocal passage from the UK mono mix), "If I Fell" (Lennon's non-double-tracked introductory vocal), and "And I Love Her" (McCartney's non-double-tracked vocal).
