Paul McCartney, a member of the famous British band “The Beatles”, said in an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) aired today that a new song created with the help of artificial intelligence using John Lennon’s old demos will be released later. Will go Year.
The Beatles disbanded in 1970, and since members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr went solo, the 4 never fit together again.
John Lennon was shot dead in New York in 1980 at the age of 40; George Harrison died of lung cancer in 2001 at the age of 58. Ringo Starr turns 82 in the blink of an eye, and Paul McCartney will turn 81 on June 18.
“This is John’s demo, we’ve started working on it, we’ve just finished it,” Paul McCartney said in an interview on BBC Radio 4’s program broadcast today.
Paul McCartney did not reveal the title of the song, but according to the BBC, it could be John Lennon’s 1978 song “Now and Then”.
The track above is one of a cassette tape that John Lennon made for Paul McCartney a year before his death. John Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, gave the tapes to Paul McCartney in 1994.
When the Beatles made “The Beatles Anthology” (The Beatles Anthology) in 1995, they thought about remaking the song. Producer Jeff Lynne later mixed two songs on tape, “Free as a Bird” and “Real Love”, which were released in 1995 and 1996, respectively. “Past” was omitted.
Paul McCartney later reported that George Harrison refused to continue working on the song at the time, saying that the sound quality of John Lennon’s vocals was too poor. He told Q Magazine: “The song title is good, it’s got a beautiful theme and John’s voice, but George didn’t like it. The Beatles were very democratic, so we didn’t do it.”
Paul McCartney had previously talked about wanting to finish the song. He told the BBC that artificial intelligence (AI) has given him new opportunities to round out his repertoire.
He told BBC Radio 4 that using techniques to “extract” John Lennon’s voice from an old demo allowed him to complete the song.
Paul McCartney said, “We’ve just finished it and it’s going to be released this year.” He called it the Beatles’ “last record”.
