London, Thanasis Gavos
Thanks to artificial intelligence, the Beatles today released a previously unreleased song, featuring the voice of John Lennon, 43 years after his death.
Almost 53 years after their disbandment, the “Beetles” returned to the discography, with the new, unreleased song Now And Then.

The song was recorded and mixed thanks to AI, allowing the legendary group to reunite, even though two of its members have been dead for years.

The single Now And Then was written and recorded in the 1970s by John Lennon.
After the legendary “beetles” singer was murdered in 1980, his wife Yoko Ono gave the tape of the recording to the remaining members of the band, along with two other songs which after technical processing were released in the mid-1990s (‘ Free As A Bird’ and ‘Real Love’).
‘Now And Then’ was also technically edited in 1995, but in the end Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr decided not to release it, believing that the limited technological means of the time did not allow Lennon’s vocals to be heard clearly.
Now the song is released thanks to new sound restoration technology, with the electric and acoustic guitar that Harrison used in the 1995 edit.
The Beatles are BACK!
The Last Ever Beatles Song ‘Now & Then’ will be released worldwide on Nov 2nd.
