Like many music fans, Julian Lennon watched Peter Jackson’s Beatles documentary “Get Back” and it had a big effect on him, making him “appreciate” his dad John Lennon.
“It really reminded me of the way Dad used to be,” Julian tells Yahoo Music. “You know, when we were together, when I was a kid, he was funny, goofy, sarcastic, talented, moody, broody — but fun.”
He notes, “And that was all the things that he was to me when we lived together. And it made me fall in love with him again, which was really lovely,” adding, “It made me appreciate him again, and reminded me of how he was before everything went a bit pear-shaped.”

Julian Lennon has released “Lucky Ones,” another song off his new album Jude, which will be out on September 9th.
Julian Lennon turned 59 on April 8th and he celebrated by releasing two songs off his forthcoming album, Jude – “Every Little Moment” and “Freedom.” Jude, his seventh album, will be out this year, but no date has been announced. The album title is a nod to The Beatles’ “Hey Jude,” which Paul McCartney wrote to comfort five-year-old Julian following his parents’ separation. McCartney originally titled it “Hey Jules” but changed “Jules” to “Jude” because he thought it sounded better in the song.
