(Radio.com) The Beatles have released a new video collaboration with Cirque du Soleil for their classic "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." Apparently, it is based on Cirque du Soleil's new staging of the song from production of the The Beatles LOVE .

The new staging of the song was done for the 10th anniversary of LOVE, which is in residence at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. According to a press release, the video was directed by Dandypunk, Andre Kasten and Leah Moyer, and "highlights new artistic and performance elements from the song's LOVE show presentation.

Throughout the video, Dandypunk's hand-drawn illustrations connect LOVE's performer, Eira Glover, with projected imagery in a series of ethereal settings. All effects were created using projection mapping and captured live, in-camera. No post production CGI was used." Watch the video here.
