In the Palace of the King of the Birds is an unreleased instrumental track created by the English rock band, The Beatles. It was written by Paul McCartney and was originally recorded around the time of Let It Be band sessions in only three takes between 6 and 9 January, 1969, at Twickenham Film Studios.[1] The track is five minutes and four seconds long (the January 6th jam session recording was said to be more than fourteen minutes long), and was recorded at the same time as the demo of "Carry That Weight."[2] The track was later forgotten and never appeared on any Beatles album or Super Deluxe Edition yet, until McCartney eventually re-recorded a still unreleased version of the song in his solo recordings, named "Castle of the King of the Birds", for the unreleased album Rupert the Bear, sometime in 1978, with Wings with a duration of only 1:42, more than three minutes shorter than the recorded original version.[1]

(The Palace of the King of the Birds is an instrumental, as such, there are no lyrics are available.)
