Almost 50 years after Decca rejected the Beatles and famously said that the group had “no future in showbusiness,” the record label is finally working with Paul McCartney to release his upcoming ballet, “Ocean’s Kingdom.”

The show is set to debut on September 22 at the New York City Ballet and will have an additional four performances in September and five in January. The recording will be released in Britain by Decca on October 3.

McCartney’s four-movement “Ocean’s Kingdom” is conducted by John Wilson and performed by the London Classical Orchestra. The ballet, which is an hour and a half long, tells the tale of an underwater love story. The deep-sea world in which the story is set is threatened by humans.

McCartney was quoted saying:

“trying to write something that expressed an emotion — so you have fear, love, anger, sadness to play with, and I found that exciting and challenging.”
