Washington, July 7 (ANI): A lost track of legendary rock band ‘The Beatles’, written in 1978, is set for release.
The song ‘Now and Then’, written by John Lennon in 1978 and later worked on by Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr when they reunited to work on the Beatles Anthology project in 1995, is set for release.
“The Beatles song ‘Now And Then’ is finished. All four Beatles are on the track,” Contactmusic quoted a source as saying
“The original Beatles reunion version from 1995 was embellished with numerous sessions over the last two years by Paul McCartney.
“He wants the song to come out very badly,” the source added.
The song features Lennon - who was shot dead in 1980 - and McCartney on vocals.
Harrison, who passed away in 2001, also sings backing vocals and plays guitar.
If the track does get a release, it will be the first new Beatles song to come out since 1996’s ‘Real Love’. (ANI)
