Previously unseen footage from 1968 gives John Lennon and Yoko Ono fans a new glimpse of one of the most famous couples in music history.

The scenes were used in a music video for a pristine new mix of the song "Look at Me," from the 1970 album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band.

The remix is included as part of a massive upcoming 50th anniversary box set, containing 159 tracks as well as a hardcover book and other memorabilia.

“In the video ... we get a glimpse into the life of John and Yoko and behind-the-scenes of their filmmaking,” Capitol/UMe said in a statement. “We see John playing acoustic guitar in between takes, his drum skin from the Sgt. Pepper’s album cover (designed by Joe Ephgrave) and his psychedelic upright piano (painted by Marijke Koger and Simon Posthuma from the Dutch design collective the Fool), the film crew setting up shots, Yoko dancing around the swimming pool while John plays his steel string and a peek into their domestic life and the undeniable connection that bound them together.”

Ono described her and John's vision for that album as "this really raw, basic, truthful reality that we were going to be giving the world. We were influencing other artists, giving them courage, giving dignity to a certain style of vulnerability and strength that was not accepted in society at the time. It was revolution for a Beatle to say, 'Listen: I'm human, I'm real.' It took a lot of courage for him to do it."
