John Lennon‘s widow, Yoko Ono, may be 80 years old, but she remains as creative and active as ever. The avant-garde artist and the latest incarnation of her Plastic Ono Band have recorded a follow-up to their 2009 album, Between My Head and the Sky, that’s scheduled for a September 17 release.
The new collection, titled Take Me to the Land of Hell, includes guest appearances by Roots drummer Questlove and Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, while surviving Beastie Boys Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond collaborated on remixes for the release.
“The energy I have right now, and the desire to continue to make as much great work as I can, is really moving me forward all the time,” says Ono in a statement. “This album is the culmination of a lot of ideas I’ve been having over the last few years and I feel proud to release it at such an exciting time of my life.”
