Antony Hegarty & Yoko Ono – “I Love You Earth”
Yoko Ono turns 82 today, and to celebrate that birthday, she’s teamed up with Antony Hegarty, another iconoclast with a voice so distinctive that you could pick it out from a block away. Together, they’ve recorded a new version of “I Love You Earth,” a song that Ono originally released on her 1985 album Starpeace. Where the original song was a synth koan, the new version is a florid, simple piano-based song with plenty of room for both voices to cut loose. The single, for sale now, is a benefit for the Rainforest Alliance. Listen to it below.
“I Love You Earth” is out at iTunes right now.
