Released on 10 July 1964 A Hard Day's Night is the third studio album by the Beatles. Side one of the album contains songs from the soundtrack to their film of the same name. In contrast to the Beatles' first two albums, all thirteen tracks on A Hard Day's Night were written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, showcasing the development of their songwriting partnership.

They had certainly found their musical voice before, but A Hard Day's Night is where it became mythical. In just a few years, they made more adventurous and accomplished albums, but this is the sound of Beatlemania in all of its giddy glory – for better and for worse, this is the definitive Beatles album, the one every group throughout the ages has used as a blueprint.

A Hard Day's Night is the first Beatles album to feature entirely original compositions, and the only one where all the songs were written by Lennon–McCartney. Lennon is the primary author of nine of the thirteen tracks on the album, as well as being the lead singer on these same nine tracks (although Paul McCartney sings lead on the title track's middle-eight). Lennon and McCartney co-wrote I'm Happy Just to Dance with You, sung by Harrison, while McCartney wrote And I Love Her, Can't Buy Me Love and Things We Said Today. It is one of three Beatles albums, along with Let It Be and Magical Mystery Tour, in which Starr does not sing lead vocal on any songs. (Starr sang the lead vocal on Matchbox during the sessions; it appeared instead on the Long Tall Sally EP.) It is also one of three Beatles albums, along with Please Please Me and Beatles for Sale, in which Harrison does not contribute to the songwriting.
