Yoko Ono ANNOUNCES NEW LP, SHARES ‘WARZONE TRACK’

NEW TRACK BEING PREMIERED EVERY TUESDAY AT IMAGINEPEACE.COM

 

‘WARZONE’ LP OUT 18TH OCTOBER ON CHIMERA MUSIC

Following twenty albums over 50 years, Yoko Ono‘s Warzone is strikingly different from any record she has made previously, but it is also strikingly different from any album that anyone is making…

Yoko revisits and reimagines 13 songs from her past work, spanning 1970-2009, the lyrics and messages still pertinent—perhaps even more pertinent—in 2018. “The world is so messed up. Things are very difficult for everybody. It’s a warzone that we are living in…” says Ono. “I like to create things in a new way. Every day things change.”

The recordings and arrangements on Warzone are very stripped down, with a particular emphasis on Yoko’s voice and lyrics. Here in this minimalist landscape the content of her message rings clear and unencumbered; sometimes somber warnings, sometimes uplifting encouragement, but her wisdom and fortitude are unflinchingly strong, her power having intensified with time and life experience. She ends the ominous questions of “Now Or Never” (1971) with one of her most famous and inspiring lines: “[a] Dream you dream alone is only a dream, but dream we dream together is reality.”

Warzone further builds the legacy of an artist unparalleled in her unique and singular vision. At 85 years young, Ono is already plotting her next album… It is not too late to change the world. We need Yoko now more than ever.

Warzone will be in stores on October 19 on Chimera Music, the label run by Sean Ono Lennon.  Leading up to the release date, Yoko will releasing a new song each Tuesday on her website ImaginePeace.com and on streaming services.
