LOS ANGELES (AP) — Don’t look now, but next month marks the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ arrival in the United States. And to mark the occasion, Apple is releasing all the albums that the Beatles released here on this side of the pond.

The 13 U.S. albums will be on iTunes — and will span the 1964 album “Meet The Beatles!” to the group’s final stateside release, “Hey Jude.”

There are differences from the band’s U.K. albums — including different track lists, song mixes as well as different album titles and art.

The release is set for Jan. 21.
