Watch The Beatles Reunite in ‘Now and Then’ Music Video
Following its online debut yesterday, The Beatles have released the accompanying music video for “Now and Then,” released as “The Last Beatles Song” and created using new technology to work new to marry the remaining members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr with an old demo. recorded by John Lennon, as well as recordings by the late George Harrison from that time The Beatles collection in the 1990s. Paul, George, and Ringo had tried to finish “Now and Then” but at that time it was determined that the original demo was too rough to use.
Decades later, software pioneered by Peter Jackson and his team while making the documentary series The Beatles: Get Back he was hired to isolate Lennon’s vocal track on the demo, and clean it up to the point where it could work. Fittingly, Jackson then directed the music video for “Now and Then”.
Fittingly, I suppose, given the way the song was only possible through technology, a number of digital tricks were used to combine new footage of Paul and Ringo with archive footage of John and George , as well as old photos of all the members. At least in concept, it is the visual equivalent of the song. In performance, well, see for yourself…

In a statement, Jackson said he was initially “reluctant” to make the video, in part because “just thinking about the responsibility of making a music video worthy of the last song that Beats out ever they brought out a collection of worries almost too. terrible to deal with.”
I told Apple how I was concerned about the lack of appropriate photos. We’d have to use a lot of rare never-before-seen footage, but not much … apparently there was nothing at all showing Paul, George and Ringo working on Now And Then in 1995 … there aren’t many pictures of John in the mid seventies when he wrote the demo… I laughed at the lack of unseen Beatles footage from the 60’s… And they didn’t even shoot any footage of Paul and Ringo worked on the song last year. his heart
Jackson says he never technically said yes, but he never said no, and he was soon “swept along as they quickly addressed my concerns . ” McCartney and Starr recorded themselves performing the song, and Apple unearthed 14 hours of “long-forgotten footage” in 1995 The Beatles Collection sessions, including footage of Paul, George, and Ringo working together on “Then and Now.” And … here we are.
What do you think? Again, I understand the concept and think it will work on that level with the song. In practice, just like me when people do this trick in movies, images of dead people being inserted into new movies always strike me as a little… creepy. Maybe that’s just me…
