Paul McCartney is set to release a segment of a never before heard Beatles song called Just Fun on what would have been John Lennon’s 80th birthday
The release will be tied in with what would have been John Lennon’s 80th birthday.
The song, called Just Fun, will be played as part of a special radio series airing on the BBC next month.
A documentary titled John Lennon at 80 will air on Radio 2 and contains interviews with Lennon’s youngest son Sean chat to his half brother Julian, Elton John and Paul McCartney about his late father.
Paul, said: “I look back on it now like a fan, how lucky was I to meet this strange teddy boy off the bus, who played music like I did and we get together and boy, we complemented each other!”
During his chat with Sean, Paul will open up about writing music with John.
He explains: “There were a few songs that weren’t very good… you know, clearly young songwriters who don’t know how to do it.”
He adds: “Eventually, we started to write slightly better songs and then enjoyed the process of learning together so much that it really took off.”
Just Fun is believed to have written in late 1957 or early 1958.
It was briefly mentioned in the Let It Be film where Paul referenced writing the track with Lennon while playing truant.
