Yoko Ono to release a 10-inch with Wu-Tang Clan's RZA
Two live recordings to be released on vinyl with all proceeds going to charity
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
