By now Fab Four fans have had plenty of time to nail down Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band on The Beatles: Rock Band, so Harmonix is unleashing the third full Beatles album for play on the game: Rubber Soul will arrive in full on December 15th for Xbox 360 and Wii, and December 17th for PlayStation 3. “Drive My Car,” “I’m Looking Through You” and “If I Needed Someone” were already available on the title’s in-game track list, and they’ll now be joined by classics including “In My Life,” “Michelle” and “Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown).” The news comes just days after Beatles fans around the globe mourned the loss of John Lennon, who was killed on December 8th, 1980 in New York.

As of now, no more full Beatles albums are slated for release on Rock Band. Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper’s arrived in October and November as the game ramped up its profile in anticipation of the holiday season. Read RS‘ review of The Beatles: Rock Band here.
