Sir Paul McCartney says artificial intelligence has enabled a 'final' Beatles song. 🎤
🎶 The Beatles were known for pushing boundaries, and their innovation continues even today. A recent article from BBC News reveals that artificial intelligence has played a key role in the creation of what Sir Paul McCartney calls "the final Beatles record."
🎤 McCartney explains that AI was used to "extricate" John Lennon's voice from an old demo recording, allowing him to complete a song. McCartney possesses the demo, which features Lennon's rough, lo-fi recording from 1978. The song, speculated to be called "Now and Then," was considered for the Beatles' Anthology series. However, George Harrison had refused to work on the track due to poor sound quality.
🚀 Fast-forward to the present, and AI technology has made it possible for McCartney to use Lennon's pure voice to create the track, with sources explaining that technology training the computers to pick out Lennon's voice from a "ropey bit of cassette" recording and separate it from background noise.
🧐 The application of AI for music creation raises questions about what's possible for future music and entertainment. McCartney acknowledges the power and potential of AI in music creation, but worries that some applications are "kind of scary." Ultimately, AI's impact on the music industry will be determined by how it is used for the creation of art.
👀 Keep an eye out for the release of this innovative track later this year!
