Modern technology allows for 'rebirth' of The Beatles
Saturday 09 April 1994
Following the assassination of John Lennon 10 years ago, fans of the group thought it could never happen. But state-of-the-art recording techniques have allowed the band to cut a new track.
The idea began after John's widow, Yoko Ono, gave Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr an unreleased recording made by him before his death.
The remaining trio went into a recording studio in the south of England to add their contributions. 'It's crazy really because, when you think about a new Beatles record, it's impossible as John is not around,' McCartney said. 'But we managed to get a track of John's that is unreleased and we just pretended that he had gone on holiday and said: 'Finish it up - I trust you'.
'That gave us a nice free feeling that we wouldn't worry about what he would think. So we just got on with it and we just treated it like any old tune the Beatles used to do, and I am quite proud of it. I think it worked out great.'
The track has been recorded as incidental music to a 10-hour TV series the trio are making, The Beatles Anthology.
Speculation, however, is rife that the song may be released as a single, taking the charts by storm.
