Within a week of revealing that he would be using artificial intelligence in the process of finishing a new Beatles song, Paul McCartney returned with a clarification.
McCartney said in an interview with BBC Radio 4‘s “Today” that aired last week that “what will be the last Beatles record” has been created from a late ’70s John Lennon demo recording with the assistance of AI.
It triggered an AI debate with strong responses coming in support and against it.
McCartney said on Twitter that he is clarifying due to “some confusion and speculation about it.”
“Seems to be a lot of guess work out there. Can’t say too much at this stage but to be clear, nothing has been artificially or synthetically created,” he said. “It’s all real and we all play on it. We cleaned up some existing recordings – a process which has gone on for years.”
“We hope you love it as much as we do. More news in due course – Paul,” added the multiple Grammy-winner.
He said the project can be expected for release later this year.
