A new documentary called The Beatles in India will center on the band's spiritual and creative connection with the country. There will also be a companion album of Beatles songs interpreted by Indian artists.

The movie is set to premiere in the U.K. on June 6, while the LP, titled The Beatles and India: Songs Inspired by the Film, will follow in the fall.

Each album track was either inspired by the Beatles' 1968 visit to India or other era-specific songs related to the country. Songs include "Child of Nature," "Sexy Sadie" and "Dear Prudence."

You can hear the first single, a cover of John Lennon's 1980 song "India, India" performed by singer Nikhil D’Souza, below.

The film is codirected by Ajoy Bose, author of Across the Universe – The Beatles in India, and cultural researcher Pete Compton and features rarely seen archival footage, photographs, recordings, eyewitness accounts, expert comments and on-location shoots across India.

The Beatles' 1968 journey to India was also documented last year in Meeting the Beatles in India, a feature from Emmy-winning filmmaker Paul Saltzman, who had traveled to India and met the group there.
