John, Paul, George, and Ringo may have parted ways in the 1970s but the Fab Four are still making music, at least in the mind of one Czech super fan.
Twenty-six-year-old České Budějovice musician David Novotny has just released “I Know My Love/We’re Still Together,” an original composition using snippets of audio from thirty Beatles’ recordings.
The four-minute song took thousands of hours to compile using hundreds of snatches of one- to two-second vocals taken from hits like “With a Little Help from My Friends.”
Novotny, who plays guitar in a local group called Metroklub Big Band, recorded the Beatles-style music with some help from his bandmates.
The song has already been viewed nine thousand times on YouTube and has landed Novotny a nomination in the Czech Book of World Records.
Novotny has been a fan of the band since he was 8-years-old, maintaining a life-long mop-top hairstyle. Naturally, he has tickets to the upcoming Paul McCartney show in Prague this June.
The aspiring musician and documentarian has even sent a recording of the track to McCartney’s current guitarist, keeping fingers crossed that one of the two living Beatles will respond.
