Check out ‘Moonbeams’, the stunning opening track taken from the new album:
Ono explains “My new album comes at a very special time for me. I’m so happy that it’s being released after all the incredible shows that made up Meltdown.
The energy I have right now, and the desire to continue to make as much great work as I can, is really moving me forwards all the time. This album is the culmination of a lot of ideas I’ve been having over the last few years and I feel proud to release it at such an exciting time of my life”.
The incredible band also includes members of Cornelius and Cibo Matto, plus – for this album – tUnEyArDs, Questlove, Nels Cline and Andrew Wyatt.
