I bet the sessions are awkward.

Yoko Ono - The Sun Is Down! (Cornelius Mix)
Sean Lennon - Parachutes
Cibo Matto - Sunday Part II

So Yoko Ono has a new album coming out in September, and all sorts of people are collaborating on it, including one Yuka Honda (of Cibo Matto) and one Sean Lennon (of John Lennon). Now I can't help but wonder if this is all a bit awkward for Sean.

I mean, not only is Yuka his ex-girlfriend, she recruited him to play in Cibo Matto (he sings backup in the track above) and produced the only album of his that anyone liked. When they broke up, the Cibo Matto broke up (making him the Yoko Ono of Cibo Matto?). Meanwhile all of his new songs are about love. It's clearly on his mind.

So I'm imagining Yoko calling up Sean, being all, "Hey Sean, I'm making an album, Yuka's on it, you should drop by and cut a few tracks and say hi or something." And how do you say no to that? So you have to hang out with your more (critically) appreciated ex-girlfriend that you maybe secretly still like and got all of your cred from? Yeah, those sessions are probably awkward. And Yoko's like, "Whatever, get over it Sean, she's a better musician than you'll ever be."

Yoko's clearly a hilarious mom.


  1. Cibo Matto did this awesome music video.
