Ono’s next release, however, will be a collaboration with The Flaming Lips. They will release a 7” vinyl version of Ono and Lennon’s classic Christmas track, ‘Happy Christmas (War is Over)’ on December 11.
Earlier this year Ono returned to Videy, near Reykjavík in Iceland to celebrate the life of late husband John Lennon. Since 2007 Ono has travelled to Iceland to light the Imagine Peace Tower on his birthday (October 9). The tower says lit until December 8, the day Lennon was shot in 1980, and then it is extinguished.
She said of Lennon: ‘I’m always so proud that John’s legacy just grows and resonates with new generations all around the world”.
It would have been Lennon’s 75th birthday this year and to mark the occasion Ono attempted to break the world record for the largest peace sign. The attempt failed, but over 2000 people joined her in Central Park in the effort.
