“Rock-pop songs appeal. They talk to people. And there’s nothing like that,” Ono explains in a statement. “Imagine was a result of that. Both of us knew that we were talking in a way that people understand. The fact that ‘Imagine’ as a song was written and put out in the world was magical. And I hope you will smell the magic of it. I feel in the big picture the fact that John and I met – was to do this song.”
John & Yoko: Above Us Only Sky is set for release on September 13th.
