The Beatles Now and Then Final song

Are you ready to turn back time and experience the magic of The Beatles one more time? The iconic English rock band is making headlines once again, and this time, it’s with a historic release that has sent shockwaves through the world of music. After a 45-year wait, The Beatles are set to unveil their long-awaited final song, ‘Now and Then,’ and it’s a momentous occasion that’s been decades in the making.

The Beatles 'Now and Then' A Song 45 Years in the Making

‘Now and Then’ is more than just a song; it’s a piece of music history. This track, often referred to as The Beatles’ ‘final song,’ has been a work in progress since the late 1970s. It all began when John Lennon penned its initial bars, and the surviving members of the band – Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr – have made it their mission to complete this masterpiece.

The journey to ‘Now and Then’ continued during the mid-1990s while The Beatles were working on their documentary series, Anthology. Initially, John Lennon had recorded the song as a demo with just piano and vocals at his Manhattan home. Tragically, he never got the chance to see it through. In 1994, Yoko Ono, Lennon’s widow, handed over the recordings of ‘Now and Then’ to Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Unfortunately, the technical limitations of that era hindered them from properly mixing the home recording.

A Modern-Day Miracle

Thanks to cutting-edge machine learning algorithms led by filmmaker Peter Jackson, who recently helmed the Beatles documentary ‘Get Back’ in 2021, McCartney and Starr were finally able to finish ‘Now and Then’ in just a year’s time. This groundbreaking achievement in music history brings closure to a song that has been close to the hearts of Beatles fans for decades.

A Magical Moment in Music

The release of ‘Now and Then’ is not just about a song; it’s a historic moment in the music scene. The track will be accompanied by a captivating making-of mini-film and a mesmerizing music video, adding an extra layer of excitement for fans.

Paul McCartney couldn’t hide his emotions when he expressed, “There it was, John’s voice, crystal clear. It’s quite emotional. And we all play on it; it’s a genuine Beatles recording. In 2023 to still be working on Beatles music, and about to release a new song the public hasn’t heard, I think it’s an exciting thing.”

Ringo Starr echoed the sentiment, describing the process as an emotional journey that brought them closer to the spirit of John Lennon, making it feel like he was in the room with them again.
