We thought the last bit of cinematic imagery from The Beatles: Rock Band was mind-blowing. Well, get a load of this: a new trailer for the video game that is an absolute work of art.

As directed by Passion Pictures' Pete Candeland, best known for his work with Gorillaz, the clip takes viewers on a gorgeous ride through the course of The Beatles' career. The animation is utterly unique, the transitions are seamless and the energy is non-stop.

In short, you've got to see it!

Enjoy the slideshow, and be sure to watch the trailer at the end.
