During the recording of the song, they used John Lennon’s vocal taken from an old cassette. Paul stated in the interview that this was a touching moment for all the surviving Beatles members.
Here’s how Paul McCartney explained one of his favorite recording memories:
“Recording the Beatles track ‘Free As A Bird’ at my studio in Sussex. Because it was so remote, nobody knew that George, Ringo, or myself had got together. So, it was very cool and it was very private. Those were fabulous sessions.
‘Free As A Bird’ was made with John’s vocal taken from his old cassette demo, and then the three of us played live along with it. It was really exciting because having him in our ears and playing along with him felt like he was really there, just in another studio. That was a really lovely memory.”
