The Beatles Just Released Their Final Song That Resurrects John Lennon’s Voice with AI

Originally published in The Byte, Nov 2, 2023.

More than 50 years after their breakup, The Beatles have released their final song — and used AI to bring John Lennon’s voice back to life.

In an announcement published on their official website, The Beatles — or their two remaining members — suggested that the band’s final song “Now and Then” is a followup to Paul McCartney’s admission earlier this year that Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, had provided him with demos from his former bandmate that included the new and final track.

Over the summer, McCartney teased in a BBC interview that the new AI-remastered track was gleaned from a tape labeled “For Paul” that Ono had given him in the 1990s.

Recorded before Lennon’s murder in 1980, the tape contained unreleased material that ended up on the first part of the Beatles’ “Anthology” series, including the tracks “Real Love” and “Free as a Bird.” When it came to “Now and Then,” however, the late George Harrison was not on board.

“George didn’t like it,” McCartney told Q Magazine back in 1997, per the BBC. “The Beatles being a democracy, we didn’t do it.”

More than 20 years later, the knighted Beatle admitted to the New Yorker that Harrison had called the song “fucking rubbish.”

As the BBC points out, McCartney has repeatedly expressed over the years that he wanted to finish the track — which apparently had a persistent buzzing sound that may have been due to the wiring in Lennon’s old Manhattan apartment complex, The Dakota  — to his liking.

  1. I recently faced a tricky situation with a leaking drain pipe leaking into the wall. It was a headache, but after some troubleshooting and DIY magic, I managed to solve it!

    Firstly, identify the source of the leak. Is it a crack or a loose joint? Once located, turn off the water supply and patch it up using sealant or replacement parts. Remember to let it dry thoroughly before testing.

    If you’re unsure, a professional plumber can save the day. Don’t let a leaky pipe dampen your spirits – tackle it head-on!

  2. I’ve been getting sessions of Plaquex IV therapy regularly now, and the results have been consistently impressive. Not only do I feel more energetic, but I’ve also noticed a positive change in my cholesterol levels. It’s remarkable how this treatment supports heart health and helps in maintaining optimal cholesterol balance.

  3. On occasion, it is possible to modify specific parameters via configuration files located outside the quordle game. Determine whether modifications can be implemented directly in the game’s configuration files, which are typically located in the installation directory of the game.
