The Beatles' Let It Be will be among the albums profiled during the second season of the Amazon Original weekly podcast Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums, which premieres at Amazon Music on November 16.

As its name suggest, the episodic podcast delves into records that were chosen for Rolling Stone magazine's latest list of the 500 greatest albums. Each episode takes a behind-the-scenes look at how one specific album on the list was made, featuring interviews with people associated with the record, and sometimes including the artists themselves.

The Let It Be episode will kick off season two of the podcast. Interviews with surviving Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are featured in the presentation, discussing details about how the band's final studio album came together, and the whether the common perception that the band members were angry with each other throughout the project is accurate.

Also appearing in the podcast are Giles Martin, son of late Beatles producer George Martin, and filmmaker Peter Jackson, director of Get Back: The Beatles, the upcoming Disney+ docuseries focusing on the Let It Be sessions.

Other upcoming episodes of the Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums podcast include shows focusing on Britney Spears' Blackout, jazz artist Alice Coltrane's Journey in Satchidananda, Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors, and Weezer's self-titled 1989 studio effort, a.k.a. The Blue Album.

Season two of the Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums podcast will be available exclusively at Amazon Music and Wondery+.

You can check out a trailer for the new season, and episodes from the podcast's first season, at Amazon.com.
