The producers of the upcoming Beatles-themed movie, Yesterday, have released a new clip, showing us the star, Himesh Patel singing the classic Beatles hit, “Yesterday.” This is when he discovers that no one has ever heard it before.
His character, Jack Malik is shocked that no one has heard the song before and he tells them it’s one of the greatest songs ever. One of the responses is, “Well, it’s not Coldplay … it’s not ‘Fix You.’”
The story follows Malik passing off the Beatles as his own work.

“Now I’m getting closer to that point, having worked with the music producer and director, who worked with me on the guitar and learning the songs and creating the thing we had to do, which was to create a new version of the songs because, in our story, they never existed,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “It gave me a real appreciation of the artistry and how special the connection was between the four of them.”
It arrives in theatres June 28.
