The Beatles released what has been billed their very last song this week, with the aid of filmmaker Peter Jackson, but now the Lord of the Rings director has hinted there may be one or two more gems in the vault.
Now and Then, a song written by John Lennon in 1978, two years before his murder, has been turned into a proper Beatles song with the aid of Jackson’s technology, using the same filmmaking magic as for his epic Beatles documentary Get Back. What started as a demo performed by Lennon in his New York apartment has been stripped and lovingly rebuilt, to include the late George Harrison on guitar, and Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr adding their special sauce for a genuine 2023 Beatles song.
