An unheard recording originally made by the late John Lennon could find its way to commercial release later this year.

The track, titled “Now And Then”, is to be compiled from archive Beatles recordings by the remaining Beatles, and is planned for release as single, reports the Daily Express.

Alongside Lennon’s vocals, sessions from the late George Harrison will also be incorporated, as will drumming from Ringo Starr and vocals from Sir Paul McCartney.

ELO musician Jeff Lynne was on board as the tracks original producer and reveals, “The song had a chorus but is almost totally lacking in verses. We did the backing track, a rough go that we really didn’t finish.

“It was sort of a bluesy sort of ballad, I suppose, in A minor. It was a very sweet song; I liked it a lot, and I wish we could have finished it.”
