Photo: George Harrison in 1974 (by David Hume Kennerly) | By Will Schube, Yahoo Entertainment | The first-ever official music video for George Harrison’s iconic “My Sweet Lord” is set to premiere this Wednesday, December 15 at 9AM PT/5PM GMT on YouTube. Featuring an all-star cast of more than 40 musicians, actors, and comedians, the teaser, which was posted to George Harrison’s Twitter, features Fred Armisen dressed like the Men in Black while Hamill instructs him on the intricacies of a particular scanner. The video doesn’t reveal much, though the Portlandia star and the Star Wars legend are likely to play large roles in the visual that appears to have been filmed partially at The Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles.

Taken from George Harrison’s towering All Things Must Pass album, “My Sweet Lord” has the distinction of being the first No.1 single in the UK and America by a former Beatle, as well as being the UK’s biggest selling single of 1971. George wrote the song, but did you know that he was not the first to record “My Sweet Lord”? George gave the song to Billy Preston to include on his September 1970 album, Encouraging Words.

George’s version of “My Sweet Lord” was recorded with Phil Spector, who was co-producing the sessions at Abbey Road Studios. Billy Preston again played on the track, along with Clapton, Ringo Starr, Jim Gordon, and all four members of Badfinger, who were signed to Apple.
