It’s a well over 40 years since John Lennon died, and over 50 years since the Beatles split up. This week delivered what is being called the last “new” Beatles song called “Now and Then”. Why talk about it in a tech show? Because AI technology was used to bring the blah original recording up to true professional standards due to issues in the originals. This was done to intro new reissues and remixes of age old audio via AI, into modern standards. Is it enough to spawn a new generation of listeners? Who knows.
The Beatles’ ‘final’ song, ‘Now and Then,’ created from a late 1970s John Lennon demo, is not a Fab Four classic. But it’s still nice to have.
