Diverse – Ocean Child: Songs of Yoko Ono (Tribute)

For love and frustration: the Yoko Ono tribute
On February 18, Yoko Ono will celebrate her 89th birthday. Fittingly, a tribute album entitled “Ocean Child: Songs of Yoko Ono” will be released on the same day, on which a few well-known artists dedicate themselves to the songs of the Japanese-American singer, artist, filmmaker and wife of John Lennon.

Initiated by Ben Gibbard, lead singer of the indie rock band Death Cab For Cutie, a total of 14 cover versions await on the record, for example by the Flaming Lips, Sharon Van Etten, Japanese Breakfast, U.S. Girls, Stephin Merritt (of Magnetic Fields), Thao, Sudan Archives and others. Gibbard and DCFC also contributed songs.

“Who Has Seen The Wind?”, reinterpreted by David Byrne and Yo La Tengo, was released to announce the project. The track was originally on the B-side of John Lennon’s 1970 single “Instant Karma!” and was later released as a bonus track on a CD version of Lennon and Ono’s “Wedding Album.”

According to Ben Gibbard, the idea for the “Ocean Child: Songs Of Yoko Ono” compilation came from both love and frustration. He said the musician wanted to counteract the public’s “ignorance of the breadth of Yoko’s work.” “[Yoko Ono] is an artist whose work runs the gamut from avant-garde to bubblegum pop, often on a single album. For years, I’ve felt that her songwriting has been criminally neglected. She has consistently created melodies as memorable as those of the best pop writers. As a lyricist, she has always written with poignancy, sophistication and deep introspection,” Gibbard said.
