In more McCartney news, he has recently hit back at controversy after revealing that AI was used to create a “final Beatles record”.
In a statement posted to his Instagram Stories, the Beatles member says AI has not been used to “artificially” create any music.
“We’ve seen some confusion and speculation about it,” McCartney stated. “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. It’s all real and we all play on it. We cleaned up some existing recordings – a process which has gone on for years.”
Presale for the Australia leg of the Got Back tour will be available from 3 August, and tickets will be on sale on 11 August.
