Meet the Beatles, 10AM, to Hear “Now and Then,” Their Final Single Created from a John Lennon Demo– NO A.I. However


Come right here at 10am to hear the Beatles’ single, “Now and Then.”

It was NOT made with A.I. It was made just “Free Like a Bird” and “Real Love” were 30 years ago. Yoko Ono gave a demo to Paul, Ringo, and George. They worked on it but John’s 1978 vocal was wobbly.

Fast forward to now, when director Peter Jackson developed an audio app that could extract the vocal and make it cleaner. He didn’t “create” anything. Paul and Ringo added to it, Giles Martin helped with production.

You will hear a few subtle instrumental references to three old Beatle songs, Easter eggs for the fans. The single drops this morning at 10am, the video on Friday.

Keep refreshing…
