The Yoko Ono Plastic Band are to release a charmingly-titled new LP, ‘Take Me To The Land Of Hell’, via Chimera Music on 16 Sep. Made at a particularly prolific time in Ono’s life – her eightieth year, in fact – in New York with her son Sean Lennon and Cibo Matto’s Yuka Honda, it features guests in tUnEyArDs, Questlove, Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, and guitarist Nels Cline.

Talking post her stint as host to Patti Smith, Siouxsie, Marianne Faithfull, Patrick Wolf and Peaches at this year’s Meltdown festival, Ono says: “My new album comes at a very special time for me. I’m so happy that it’s being released after all the incredible shows that made up Meltdown. The energy I have right now, and the desire to continue to make as much great work as I can, is really moving me forwards all the time. 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”.
