Fans of the Beatles might just twist and shout in joy. A new Beatles song will be released next week, featuring the voice of late member John Lennon and developed using artificial intelligence, record company Universal Music Group said on Thursday (Oct 26).
Called Now And Then, the song – billed as the last Beatles song – also features parts recorded by surviving members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr as well as the late George Harrison.
“There it was, John’s voice, crystal clear,” McCartney said in a statement. “It’s quite emotional. And we all play on it, it’s a genuine Beatles recording.
“In 2023 to still be working on Beatles music, and about to release a new song the public haven’t heard, I think it’s an exciting thing.”
