Unreleased Beatles ‘Revolution’ take 20 hits the web

An unreleased Beatles tune has popped up on the internet, and it's pretty cool.

The nearly 11-minute track is apparently "Take 20" of the White Album's "Revolution 1." It starts off with studio chatter, including a high-pitched John Lennon saying, "Take your knickers off and let's go," before it goes into a  a take on "Revolution 1." Around the five-minute mark the song takes an unexpected turn toward "Revolution 9" territory, using tape loops, voice distortion and samples.

"Take 20" ends with some heady conversation between Lennon and Yoko Ono, something about being naked and how things are "going to be alright."
