Titled Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans, the record celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and the 40th anniversary of the first Star Wars flick, Episode IV: A New Hope. How? By changing the lyrics of the songs from the groundbreaking 1967 album to tell the story of the blockbuster 1977 sci-fi/fantasy movie.

The project, which was five years in the making, can be downloaded for free at PaletteSwapNinja.com and is also streaming at the duo’s official SoundCloud page. If that’s not enough, there are also song videos created using footage from Star Wars: A New Hope on Palette-Swap Ninja’s YouTube channel.

In joint statement about Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans, the duo — keyboardist Jude Kelley and guitarist Dan Amrich — explain, “It’s the entire Beatles album as accurately as we could record it, only now it tells the story of Star Wars: A New Hope — in order.”

Palette-Swap Ninja adds about the long-in-the-works project, “We’re very proud. We’re very happy. We’re very tired,” while encouraging fans to spread the word about the album by using the the hashtag #PLSDSP.
