Artists including Stereophonics and Mick Hucknall are to recreate the Beatles' famous 12-hour recording session to mark 50 years since the famed musicians began work on their debut album.

Sir Paul MCCartney and his bandmates headed into London's legendary Abbey Road studios in February 1963 to lay down tracks for Please Please Me, which was released just a month later, and they produced most of the songs in a marathon day-long recording session.

A number of stars have now joined an ambitious project to mark the 50th anniversary, with Welsh rockers Stereophonics and former Simply Red frontman Hucknall aiming to recreate the album in the same short time frame.

Singer/songwriter Gabrielle Aplin will also take part in the challenge, which will be broadcast live on Britain's Radio 2.

The acts will perform the songs in order at the Abbey Road studios during the broadcast on 11 February (13).

Bob Shennan of BBC Radio 2 says, "The re-creation of Please Please Me promises to be one of Radio 2's stand-out moments of 2013. Hearing those tracks brought to life again with a contemporary twist will have the network buzzing as much as the original did. It's one album that changed the world of pop music and I think the 50th anniversary is a timely moment to remind everyone why."
