Call me an old geezer, but something new from the Beatles is a cause for celebration, innit? The new song, Now and Then, will delight Beatle people, but mystery shrouds the project like potsmoke on St. Mark's Place. Some call it a hoax.
Not so, says Paul McCartney, and he is anxious to release it.
According to MOG, "It was rumored that when Yoko gave Paul the demos of "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love" that were polished up later by Paul, George and Ringo for The Beatles Anthology sets in the mid-90's, she also gave Paul a third demo."
That demo was a Lennon composition called "Now and Then." After some work by the remaining bandmembers, here is the polished result.
What do you think? Is it real, or something to get hung about? Have a spot of tea and give it a listen:
Paul also wanted to release the unheard ‘Carnival of Light’, a 14-minute composition, but Harrison was against the plans.
