Beatles bassist Paul McCartney has utilized the power of Artificial Intelligence to create a “final” song from the iconic band. Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s “Today” segment, the musician shared how he used AI to recreate the voices of his late bandmates John Lennon and George Harrison, as well as to make his own voice sound younger.

“When we came to make what will be the last Beatles record – it was a demo that John had that we worked on and we just finished it up, it will be released this year – and we were able to take John’s voice and get it pure through this AI,” McCartney told the station. “So then we were able to mix the record as you would normally do.”

McCartney spoke about how AI was used to “extricate” Lennon’s voice on a demo track, which was then included in the 2021 documentary series The Beatles: Get Back.

Referring to the AI track as the “final” song from the Beatles, McCartney said he plans to release it this year.
