In NDPR, Richard Polt reviews Ponderings II-VI: Black Notebooks 1931-1938, translated by Richard Rojcewicz.
Not everything in this volume is political, at least not obviously so. For instance, Heidegger sketches his critique of Western metaphysics and proposes that the question of being should be oriented not by "the 'it is,' but [by] the 'let it be' (thrown projection)". He asserts that "absence as beenness and as future" is "richer" than presence. He blames himself for the shortcomings of the unfinished Being and Time: "the author himself stupidly held back the main point!" and let the book be taken as "philosophy of existence" à la Kierkegaard.
I find the Replacements' Let It Be more oriented towards thrown projection, than the Beatles'.
