Could we hear another Lennon-McCartney Beatle track?


A month or so ago we reported that Paul had regretted not finishing a third Threetles Anthology reunion track.  Well it looks like we may have another one in the works for Paul.  It looks like it may see the light of day afterall.  I’m just wondering if they release it, how will they sell it as a new single?  Could The Beatles first online digital release in 2007 be a brand new single…we’ll have to wait and see.

Here’s what we’ve read.

Paul McCartney is planning to reunite with his late Beatles bandmate John Lennon and finish an unreleased track the pair sang together.

The Fab Four abandoned Now And Then during their prime. McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr tried to resurrect the track when they put together their Beatles Anthology albums 10 years ago, but guitarist Harrison claimed it was not good enough.

Now McCartney wants to go back and finish the job.

A source tells British newspaper the Daily Express: “It has always niggled a bit with Paul that they didn’t finish Now And Then.

“While George wasn’t keen, Paul always thought the song had a lot of potential. He is now hoping to complete it after all, with him singing the harmonies to John’s lead vocal. It would obviously be very moving to hear the pair of them singing together one last time.”

McCartney himself recently said of the song: “It needed a bit of reworking but it had a beautiful verse.”

  1. I’d heard about this before and I remember thinking that maybe it wasn’t so much for George that the track wasn’t good enough, but that the whole experience was just too emotionally draining for him personally. I don’t know. Anyway, I imagine that if anyone could do something with the track it would be Paul. I hope he goes through with it. It’d be beautiful just to hear their voices together again, like this unidentified source says.

  2. […] once the Beatles catalog gets onto iTunes.  Who knows?  I would simply just like to see them release it.  Would it make a fitting tribute to those who we’ve lost in the beatle family?  […]
