Yoko Ono is to release a 10-inch with RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan.

The pair previously worked together in 2010, staging a night of performance art in the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, which included them playing chess together and performing musical duets. However, the forthcoming 10-inch will be their first recorded work available to the public.

Included on the release will be live recordings of 'Seed of Joy / Life Is a Struggle' as well as Yoko Ono's Plastic Ono Band's 'Greenfield Morning I Pushed An Empty Baby Carriage All Over The City'. The release will be available via a limited run of 1,000 on one-sided vinyl with an etching done by Ono on the B-side. Proceeds from the sale of the vinyl will go to the Children's Literary Society, a non-profit association dedicated to the academic study of literature for children

Earlier this week a new version of Alt-J 's track 'Breezeblocks' was remixed by RZA. Click below to listen to the new version of the song, which mixes breakbeats with jazz and funk influences. RZA also appears on Earl Sweatshirt's new album 'Doris', guesting on the track 'Molasses'. Other guests on the Odd Future affiliate's record include Tyler, The Creator, Frank Ocean, Mac Miller and Domo Genesis.
