His final single with The Beatles dominated the music charts nearly five decades ago.

And Sir Paul McCartney has shared the origins behind his smash hit Let It Be as the the legendary singer took James Corden on a tour of his stomping ground in Liverpool during the Carpool Karaoke segment of The Late Late Show.

Sending the 39-year-old talk show host into tears, the award-winning pop star, 76, revealed the iconic song was based on a dream about his late mother Mary, who reassured Paul with positivity.

During the Liverpool native's tour of the English city, the League Of Their Own star gushed over the track's powerful message on joy and love.

James said: 'The song touches on positivity, joy, love and togetherness, which I think is more relevant today than ever!'

Speaking on the song's long-lasting impact, Paul responded: 'We expected it to last for only 10 years.'

The Yesterday hitmaker went on to discuss his eye-opening dream about his mother, who passed away when Paul was only 14.

He said: 'I had a dream in the 60s about my mum, who died when I was young. She came to me and reassured me, saying "it's going to be okay, just let it be."  

The belter added: 'I felt so great, she gave me such positive words. She said "let it be", so I wrote the song!'
