The video comes just days before the release of the forthcoming box set, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band – The Ultimate Collection, due April 23 via Capitol/UMe, of which the track is included alongside Raw Studio Mixes for every song on the album as well as John’s non-album singles.

The eight-disc super deluxe box set, celebrating 50 years of John’s solo masterpiece, is an immersive, deep listening experience and in-depth exploration of the record John described as “the best thing I’ve ever done.”

The project was authorized by Yoko Ono Lennon, who oversaw the production and creative direction. The collection also includes the same audio team that worked on 2018’s critically acclaimed Imagine – The Ultimate Collection, including triple Grammy-Award-winning engineer Paul Hicks and mixers/engineers Rob Stevens and Sam Gannon.

The Ultimate Collection puts listeners in the center of the studio and explores the album’s 1970 recording sessions at EMI Studios 2 & 3, Abbey Road along with John’s post-Beatles singles, “Give Peace A Chance,” “Cold Turkey,” and “Instant Karma! (We All Shine On).”

From inception to the final master, the sessions are explored through scores of unreleased and rare demos, rehearsals, outtakes, jams, and studio conversations, revealing how these beloved songs came to be. Everything in this expansive box set has been newly mixed from scratch from brand new 192kHz/24bit hi-res transfers. In addition to the various new mixes, the set boasts 87 never-before-heard recordings.

John and Yoko Ono’s John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band – The Ultimate Collection is out April 23 and available for pre-order here.
