New Beatles song – level 2

31-10-2023 15:00

A new Beatles song called ‘Now and Then’ is coming soon. It will include the voice of the late John Lennon created by artificial intelligence (AI).

This song should be the last Beatles song and it also has parts recorded by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison. Paul McCartney mentioned that it is emotional to hear John’s voice so clearly. The song’s history goes back to the late 1970s when Lennon made a home demo in New York City.

The Beatles stopped working together in 1970, and George Harrison passed away in 2001. After Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono shared the recordings, the other Beatles members added their parts. But they couldn’t separate Lennon’s singing and piano until recent advances in technology.

Difficult words: emotional (something that touches your feelings), widow (a woman whose husband dies), advance (a development).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
