A new app focusing on the creatively fruitful trip John Lennon took to Bermuda in 1980 will be released later this fall. John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapeswill go on sale November 5 exclusively via the iTunes App Store, and will be playable on iPad and iPhone devices.
The program celebrates the time the late Beatles legend spent on the island, where he collaborated long distance with wife Yoko Ono in New York City on many songs that appeared on his final two albums, Double Fantasy and Milk and Honey. The app will include intimate demos of such Lennon songs as “(Just Like) Starting Over,” “Woman,” “I’m Losing You” and “Nobody Told Me.” It also will offer interactive features allowing the user to relive the stormy sailing trip John made from Newport, Rhode Island, to Bermuda and to revisit a disco that served as a source of inspiration for Double Fantasy.
