The Beatles' ‘last’ song Now and Then on track for Number 1

The Beatles could make Chart history this week as the Fab Four plot a spectacular return to Number 1 with new single 'Now And Then' which is currently outselling the Top 5.

The ‘last’ song from John, Paul, George and Ringo would become the Fab Four’s landmark 18th UK chart-topper, and their first in 54 years, since The Ballad of John and Yoko in 1969.

'Now And Then' was written and recorded by John Lennon in New York in the late 1970s, before being developed by the other band members, including George Harrison, in 1995.

Lennon's wife Yoko Ono had given the recording to the remaining Beatles the previous year.

But technology at the time was more limited and the band were unhappy with the sound quality.

Now, however, with the help of AI, Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Ringo Starr have finished it.
