More new music from The Beatles being released is a “conceivable” idea, according to Peter Jackson.

Last week, the world’s most famous band made a triumphant return with “final” single ‘Now And Then’. The song featured original vocals from the late John Lennon and used AI to ‘reunite’ the Fab Four. It appears on a new deluxe edition of the band’s Red and Blue Greatest Hits albums.

It came after McCartney’s latest tour saw him take advantage of some digital trickery from Peter Jackson – who also directed the band’s mammoth Get Back series in 2021 – to give the impression he has been reunited with the late John Lennon to duet on ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’.

‘Now And Then’ has been touted as The Beatles’ “final” song, but Jackson has now said it’s possible that technological advances could lead to more music from the band being shared in the future.

Speaking to The Sunday Times, Jackson said: “We can take a performance from Get Back, separate John and George, and then have Paul and Ringo add a chorus or harmonies.”

“You might end up with a decent song,” he added. “But I haven’t had conversations with Paul about that.”

While he said the idea of such a thing happening is purely “fanboy stuff” at this moment, he sees it as “certainly conceivable”.
