Love is a soundtrack remix album of music by The Beatles, released in November 2006 via Apple Records.

The idea for using the Beatles' music in a Cirque du Soleil production had originally come from George Harrison, who died in November 2001, through his friendship with the company's founder, Guy Laliberté.

George Martin and his son Giles Martin began work on Love after obtaining permission from Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison.

Speaking to Mojo editor Jim Irvin in December 2006, Giles Martin said that he first created a demo combining "Within You Without You" with "Tomorrow Never Knows", which he then nervously presented to McCartney and Starr for their approval. In Martin's recollection, "they loved it", with McCartney saying: "This is what we should be doing, more of this."

In discussing the project, Giles Martin noted that elements were used from recordings in the Beatles catalogue, "the original four tracks, eight tracks and two tracks and used this palette of sounds and music to create a soundbed". Because he was concerned that they might not get the green light to proceed with Love, he began by making digital back-ups of the original multi-track recordings, just to get started on the project. He also said that he and his father mixed more music than was eventually released, including "She's Leaving Home" and a version of "Girl" that he was particularly fond of, which was eventually released in 2011 as a bonus track on the album on iTunes.

McCartney and Starr both responded very positively to the completed album. McCartney said that it "puts The Beatles back together again, because suddenly there's John and George with me and Ringo". Starr commended the Martins for their work, adding that Love was "really powerful for me and I even heard things I'd forgotten we'd recorded".

Love debuted at #4 on the US Billboard 200 and #3 on the UK albums charts. The album also reached #2 on the Australian ARIA albums charts. The album received universal acclaim from music critics and bought the Beatles music to a new, younger audience.

At the 50th annual Grammy Awards on 10 February 2008, the album won Grammys in two categories – Best Compilation Soundtrack Album and Best Surround Sound Album.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2014 reissue on 180 gram heavyweight black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with 28 page booklet, pressed in Europe via Apple Records.
