So how do we feel about this AI reworking of The Beatles?

Back around 1986, Paul McCartney got together with producer Phil Ramone to work on a new track using Billy Joel’s backing band. It was never finished, although Beatles fanatics managed to get hold of it (probably from demo cassettes that Macca had made), dubbing it “Return to Pepperland” as it was a tribute to the 20th anniversary release of Sgt. Pepper. It was supposed to be released as a 12-inch single, but…

YouTuber Dae Lims has taken his own shot at the song, adding in some “AI John Lennon” and a few other tweaks. The result is a cross between The Beatles, ELO, Todd Rundgren, and solo McCartney.
