Speaking to BBC Radio 4, McCartney said that they made the “last” song of The Beatles with artificial intelligence.
In this context, they used the voice of John Lennon, who died in 1980, in their new song by separating the voice from the instrument through artificial intelligence.
While it was stated that the unnamed song could be “Now and Then” composed by Lennon in 1978, McCartney noted that the song will be released this year.
In 2022, Lennon’s wife, Yoko Ono, sent the tape to Paul McCartney, which included a draft of “Now and Then”, which was thought to be a possible “reunion song” while the band was preparing their career anthology in 1995.
Producer Jeff Lynne arranged the song “Now and Then”, which Lennon wrote while in retirement.
Dialogue editor Emile de la Rey also created an artificial intelligence command to identify the members of The Beatles’ voices and separate them from the background sounds.
