Surviving members of The Beatles, Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Ringo Starr, have reunited musically once again. The Fab Four duo worked together on an EP which includes a remastered version of Beautiful Night. The track is part of a re-release of Sir Paul’s 1997 solo album Flaming Pie.
The EP, which was released last week, includes a 1995 demo of the song.
Plus recordings of The Beatles stars talking about the track together.
The black and white music video of the Beautiful Night song, which also features Linda McCartney, has also been released and can be viewed below.
Speaking with PA, Sir Paul revealed the “magic” of working with Sir Ringo once again.

The Beatles legend said: “I’d been saying to Ringo for years that it’d be great to do something, because we’d never really done that much work together outside The Beatles.
“One night Jeff (Lynne, Electric Light Orchestra co-founder) suggested, ‘Why don’t you get Ringo in?’ and I said, ‘OK.’ It just sort of happened.
“I had this song Beautiful Night which I’d written quite a few years ago.
“I’d always liked it but I felt I didn’t quite have the right version of it.”
Sir Paul continued: “So I got this song out for when Ringo was coming in, and right away it was like the old days.
“I realised we hadn’t done this for so long, but it was really comfortable and it was still there.
“To sit down with Ringo is always a great thing.
“It’s always worthwhile. It’s always fun.”

The re-release of Sir Paul’s Flaming Pie solo album is part of the upcoming The Paul McCartney Archive Collection.
It will feature 32 bonus tracks and a 128-page book.
While the latter will contain unseen photographs taken by Linda McCartney.
The two surviving Beatles last reunited live in Los Angeles on Sir Paul’s 2019 solo tour.
Sir Ringo shared the footage of them performing Helter Skelter at the concert together.
The clip was shown at the end of the drummer’s hour-long 80th birthday show on his YouTube channel.
Hopefully, the two surviving Beatles will reunite live once again when the worst of the pandemic is over and music venues reopen properly.
The Paul McCartney Archive Collection will be released on July 31, 2020.
