Speaking about the new album, Gibbard said: “Yoko creates art that teaches us all that there can be peace. [‘Ocean Child: Songs of Yoko Ono’] born of both love and despair.
The “love” part is very clear; This is a deep well of inspiration and pleasure that Yoko Ono music has given me, and I have to guess everyone involved in this compilation. On the other hand, the “sAcesparksess” part goes back decades. “
He continued: “As a lawyer, the biggest obstacle to a solution has always been the public’s ignorance of the breadth of Yoko’s case. Put it in context; This is an artist who often managed the gamut from avant-garde to chewing gum on a single album.
“Some of his best songs have been performed and collected here by a generation of musicians who have been instrumental in his work. Hopefully, the new song by Yoko Ono fans will fall in love with her songwriting thanks to a small part of this album we created.
The album will also be accompanied by a podcast organized by Gibbard and music journalist Jenny Eliscu, which will feature in-depth discussions about Ono’s music and heritage. Yoko Ono songs will premiere through all podcast providers – listen to the official trailer below.
