- The song dubbed “Now And Then”
The English pop /rock band “Beatles” is set to release its last song on 2nd/November 2023 after more than 50 years of breakup.
The song named “Now And Then”, is based on a 1970s demo recording by John Lennon, now the last two living Beatles namely Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr came me together” to finish it.
Lennon wrote and recorded the song at his home in New York City in the late 1970s. It was later worked on by McCartney, Starr and George Harrison – who died in 2001 – in the mid-90s, and finished by McCartney and Starr this year, over four decades later.
The track coined by McCartney features the original vocals recorded by Lennon that were preserved using artificial intelligence.
The Beatles "Get Back filmmaker" Peter Jackson was commissioned in 2021 to help bring “Now and Then” back to life by applying the same Al restoration technique used in the groundbreaking documentary.
By 2022, Starr and McCartney set out to complete the song, which also features new instrumentation from both, plus guitar recordings by Harrison from the 90s to complement Lennon’s vocals.
Backing vocals from Beatles songs “Here, There And Everywhere,” “Eleanor Rigby” and “Because” were mixed into the final cut.
The release of Now And Then will be preceded by a documentary about the making of the song, which will premiere on 1st /November/2023
