YOKO ONO continues her nearly 16-year long love affair with electronic dance music with her upcoming club single “HELL IN PARADISE 2016” to be released as two separate digital maxi singles via Mind Train/TWISTED Records.
The blistering anthem, with mixes by Grammy winner DAVE AUDÉ, ALYSON CALAGNA, CAMELPHAT, PAGANO and DJ KUE, is the first official single from ONO’s critically-acclaimed remix collaborations album YES, I'M A WITCH TOO (out now on Manimal Group), which includes productions by MIIKE SNOW, DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE, TUNE-YARDS, PETER BJORN & JOHN, MOBY, SPARKS, PORTUGAL THE MAN, DANNY TENAGLIA and more.
The searing call to arms features sweltering powerhouse backing vocals by NONA HENDRYX, BERNARD FOWLER and YOLANDA LEE LEWIS. The song captures the tension and nihilism of both the turbulent 1980’s, with its Cold War and AIDS, and today's world, with international terrorism and global political upheaval run amok.
It's another slice of thought-provoking and socially-conscious dance music from the singular “Mother of Cool". Co-Executive Producer and Mind Train label head Rob Stevens, who's worked with ONO on the entire series of dance remixes, says: “ONO's prescience, her ability to see decades into the future, is stunning. She then welcomes Grammy-winning and internationally renowned remixers to take her lyrics and vocals and turn them into thrilling contemporary works resulting in 12 Billboard #1 dance singles and four more top 10's."
