Paul McCartney Explains New Beatles Single to Worried Fans: “Nothing has been artificially or synthetically created”


Beatles fans have been a little worried about the ‘new’ single Paul McCartney kind of announced on British TV last week. He made it seem like artificial intelligence was used to resurrect John Lennon and George Harrison.

Sean Ono Lennon tried to explain it all in a Tweet, which I reported the other day. But now Sir Paul is reassuring everyone with this Tweet.

Been great to see such an exciting response to our forthcoming Beatles project. No one is more excited than us to be sharing something with you later in the year.

We’ve seen some confusion and speculation about it. Seems to be a lot of guess work out there. Can’t say too much at this stage but to be clear, nothing has been artificially or synthetically created. It’s all real and we all play on it. We cleaned up some existing recordings – a process which has gone on for years.

We hope you love it as much as we do. More news in due course – Paul
