Antony & Yoko: “I Love You Earth” & “I’m Going Away Smiling”

In honor of Yoko Ono‘s 82nd birthday, the singer has collaborated with Antony and John Zorn on two new limited edition 10″ vinyl releases.

The first is called Antony & Yoko and features a duet on Ono’s “I Love You Earth”, along with Antony’s solo rendition of Ono’s “I’m Going Away Smiling”.

The second is called Yoko Ono & John Zorn, and features an improvisation between the two called “Blink” that was performed on WNYC back in 2012. More info here.

Antony interprets two powerful Yoko Ono songs in the studio, with Thomas Bartlett on piano, and joined by Yoko on a moving vocal duet on “I Love You Earth.” Antony’s interpretation of “I’m Going Away Smiling” is stark and haunting.
