“Real Love” is the last Beatles song

“Real Love” is the last “new” credited Beatles song to originate and be included on an album, Anthology 2.

To date, it is the last single by the group to become a top 40 hit in the US, reaching number 4 and 11, respectively, in the UK and US singles charts.

Written by John Lennon, it was recorded with overdubs by the three surviving Beatles in 1995 for release as part of the Beatles Anthology project.

The same approach was used for another incomplete Lennon track, “Free as a Bird”, released on Anthology 1, 25 years after the break-up of the band and 15 years after Lennon’s death.
