Here Comes the Sun was written by George Harrison in Eric Clapton’s garden in Surrey during a break from stressful band business meetings. The basic track was recorded on 7 July 1969. Harrison sang lead and played acoustic guitar, Paul McCartney provided backing vocals and played bass and Ringo Starr played the drums. John Lennon was still recuperating from a car accident and did not perform on the track. George Martin provided an orchestral arrangement in collaboration with Harrison, who overdubbed a Moog synthesizer part immediately before the final mix.
