One track mind julian lennon does beatles like song with steven tyler

  1. 1.

The song features Steven Tyler andfeatures psychedelic visuals reminiscent of the Beatles Rock Band, along withclips of the Beatles and Julian Lennon and Steven Tyler. [SEE VIDEO BELOW]“2013 highlights another year of inspiration for me in regards to my music,photography and philanthropy work, and ‘Someday’ is a reflection of that,”Lennon said, according to song was recorded as an addition to “Everything Changes,” which will followthe single. "Everything Changes" was first released in 2011 and met with mixedreview, generated no hit singles and was not released in the US. Lennon decidedto record some additional tracks for the album in preparation for a fullinternational release and a European reissue in 2013, according to Yahoo! MusicCanada. Steven Tyler joined Julian in the studio after Lennon sang backup onthe opening track of Aerosmith’s album last year.
  2. 2. “Someday” begins with music sounding like the Beatles’ famous “Tomorrow Never Knows,” before beginning with a line from the Beatles’ song “Baby You’re A Rich Man” – “How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?” At 50, Julian is the oldest of the Beatles’ children and has now lived for a decade longer than his father, John Lennon, who was murdered in 1980 at age 40. Julian Lennon and his mother, Cynthia Lennon, have had a publicly rocky relationship with John Lennon’s second wife and son, Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon. Although the four posted for a photo together in 2010, Julian Lennon went on a Facebook rant in 2011 after being excluded from Beatles events. “I think I could handle things a little more delicately but I also don’t want to candy coat things. I don’t want to fight with anybody but there are some things I have to stand up for. That comes from Dad and it comes from Mum. She is not going to take any s--- from anybody, especially given what’s she’s been through in her life,” he told the London Express about his public rants in a 2012 interview. f his last album seemed to be about coming to terms with John Lennon, both the good and bad of their often estranged relationship, Julian Lennon’s new single “Someday” is about rushing toward that shared legacy — and pulling it in close. This is a mature, fully integrated effort that takes in both the obvious influences that DNA hath wrought, and everything that Lennon has slowly built into his own songwriting craft in the interim — from his tandem opening reading with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler of a line from the Beatles’ “Baby You’re a Rich Man,” set amidst swooning strings, to his gimlet-eyed philosophizing about community in this unmannered age: “It’s not about right or wrong,” Lennon sings, “or how far down the road we’ve gone: It’s just about holding on.” Lennon, as his father did before him, is advocating that we pull together, that we love each other as one — even as he qualifies all of it with the song title’s one-word, brutally realistic retort: “Someday.” Lennon, who turned 50 today, then begins a billowing exploration of the lyric, as Tyler’s vocal intertwines with his own, sending what was once a lithe, though very Beatle-esque pop confection into a stratospheric, even more Beatle-esque psychedelia. Yet it never sounds taped together, never sounds like the cunning pastiche perhaps indicated in that description. Because at its center now stands a singer-songwriter who’s found his own voice, and his own peace with everything that came before.1.
