The issue of the British music paper Melody Maker published today announced, “Beatles Single Surprise! — ‘Eleanor Rigby’ out on August 5.” The subheads say “No A side” and “Ringo lead,” in reference to the fact that “Eleanor” would be released as a double A-side with “Yellow Submarine.” There’s some other stuff in there too, and you might be able make it out if you squint hard enough. I can’t, but let me know if you figure anything out.
