Sgt. Pepper's

McCartney's Penny Lane was released together with Lennon's Strawberry Fields Forever as a double A-sided single in February 1967. Both songs were originally written for Sgt. Pepper, but none of them ended up on the album. The reason for this was that Capitol Records in the US desperately wanted a new Beatles single for the American market. The Beatles generally didn't want songs that had been released as singles to feature on the albums as well. The Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever single was an unusual release because both songs were about childhood memories from Liverpool.
