“Now and Then” — promoted as “The Last Beatles Song” — was released on Nov. 2, and on Nov. 3, the duo The Kennedys and members of group The Slambovian Circus of Dreams joined together to cover it at their double-bill concert at the Outpost in the Burbs in Montclair.

You can watch a video of it below, along with the official Beatles video for the song.

Maura Kennedy sings lead, and is joined by her partner Pete Kennedy; Slambovian Circus of Dreams members Joziah Longo, Tink Lloyd and Sharkey McEwen; and bassist Mark Dann.

The Beatles song started with a lo-fi demo left behind by the late John Lennon. Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison worked on it in 1995 but didn’t get a releasable version done. McCartney and Starr recently finished it, helped by technological advances that have occurred since ’95.

The song will appear on an expanded edition of The Beatles’ 1967-1970 anthology (also known as The Blue Album), to be released on Nov. 10.
