The Beatles and their Timeless Music
The Beatles were formed in the 1960s in Liverpool and quickly became one of the most legendary bands of all time. Their hits like “Let it be”, “Yesterday” and “Love is all you need” have stood the test of time and continue to be enjoyed by generations.
New Song by John Lennon with the Help of AI
Now, a new song featuring John Lennon’s voice will be added to The Beatles’ repertoire. This has been made possible with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI). John Lennon and Yoko Ono will also have a new documentary called “Daytime Revolution” that will incorporate AI-generated images.
The Influence of Technology on Music
Technology continues to grow by leaps and bounds, and AI-generated images and sounds are revolutionizing social media and music. In a recent interview with Today, Paul McCartney revealed that The Beatles’ last recording will feature Lennon’s voice. It has been created by taking his voice from an old recording and using AI to put it into a song.
The Creation of the New Song
Although Paul McCartney did not reveal the name of the song, speculation suggests that it might be “Now And Then,” a composition that Lennon made in 1978. The song was part of the For Paul cassette that Yoko Ono later gave to McCartney. However, the song was never completed.
The documentary The Beatles: Get Back, directed by Peter Jackson, opened a new door to hope. The dialogue editor, Emile de la Rey, was able to use AI to recognize the voices of The Beatles and separate them from background noise, thus refining the audio. MacCartney said that the director “was able to get John’s voice” out of a small cassette: “We had John’s voice and a piano and he could separate them with AI. They tell the machine ‘that’s the voice. This is a guitar. Lose the guitar’”.
The Exciting Future of AI Technology in Music
The new release by The Beatles thanks to AI technology is both exciting and a little scary. It is the future, but it remains to be seen where it takes us. McCartney admitted that although the mixing was done by them, the technology gave them a certain “freedom”.
The release of The Beatles’ newest song will certainly attract both fans and skeptics. Nonetheless, it is a testament to the fantastic potential of AI technology in the music industry.
