Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (often referred to simply as Sgt. Pepper's) is the eighth studio album by English rock band the Beatles. Released in June 1967, the album included songs such as "With a Little Help from My Friends", "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds", and "A Day in the Life". Continuing their artistic maturation on Revolver (1966), Sgt. Pepper's further departed from the conventional pop rock idiom of the time and incorporated balladry, psychedelic, music hall, and symphonic influences.
During the Sgt. Pepper's sessions, the group improved upon the quality of their music's production while exploring experimental recording techniques. Producer George Martin's innovative approach included the use of an orchestra. Widely acclaimed and imitated, the album cover design by English pop artists Peter Blake and Jann Haworth, was inspired by a sketch by Paul McCartney that depicted the band posing in front of a collage of some of their favourite celebrities.
Sgt. Pepper's was a worldwide critical and commercial success, spending a total of 27 weeks at the top of the UK Album Chart and 15 weeks at number one on the US Billboard 200. A seminal work in the emerging psychedelic rock style, the album was critically acclaimed upon release and won four Grammy Awards in 1968. It is considered the most influential and most famous rock album of all time, and is one of the world's best selling albums. Sgt. Pepper's has been named the greatest album of all time by both All Time Top 1000 Albums and Rolling Stone.
