“There it was, John’s voice, crystal clear,” he said.

“It’s quite emotional. And we all play on it, it’s a genuine Beatles recording. In 2023 to still be working on Beatles music, and about to release a new song the public haven’t heard, I think it’s quite an exciting thing.”

The song will be the final “new” Beatles track to be released.
