Today is Yoko Ono’s birthday. Born 82 years ago in early 30s Tokyo, she has spent much of her life so far on activism as well as art. On top of making 15 studio albums and working relentlessly within other mediums, she’s campaigned for peace, human rights and the environment since the 1960s, most famously with the ‘bed-in’ against the Vietnam War with John Lennon. To celebrate Ono’s big day, we’re streaming a new version of ‘I Love You, Earth’ with Antony Hegarty. It’s a haunting rework of the track first heard on Ono’s 1985 concept album, ‘Starpeace’ and their vocals combine addictively. Wanna help save the rainforest?
