The highly sought-after and previously unreleased mixes of ONOâ€™s #1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play charting single â€œNO, NO, NOâ€ (THE REMIXES) and the #2 charting smash / #6 dance track of 2007 â€œYOUâ€™RE THE ONEâ€ (THE REMIXES) also set for digital release.
New York â€“ Following the massive critical and commercial success of Yoko Onoâ€™s ambitious remix collections â€“ YES, Iâ€™M A WITCH and OPEN YOUR BOX (MINDTRAIN/Astralwerks) which paired the seminal performer with the 21st century underground — ONO readies for the digital release of â€œGIVE PEACE A CHANCEâ€ (THE REMIXES). The new release (available June 1 at Beatport.com and July 1 at the iTunes Music Store) commemorates the 39th anniversary of the world peace anthem’s historic June 1, 1969 recording. The song was recorded during John Lennon and Yoko Onoâ€™s infamous week-long â€œBed-In For Peaceâ€ in Room 1742 at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Canada.
The enduring, landmark song has been re-recorded by ONO as an uplifting, poetic narrative resonating with a contemporary sense of urgency and optimism. The timely release speaks to todayâ€™s tumultuous political, social and environmental climate. And with it, Ono –the tireless humanitarian– offers a poignant and evocative mantra that is a song of hope, inspiration and limitless possibilities in a time of change.
For this important milestone release, MINDTRAIN Records again partners with legendary dance label TWISTED Records. Together they issued ONOâ€™s #1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart-toppers â€œWALKING ON THIN ICEâ€ (The Remixes) and â€œEVERYMAN / EVERYWOMANâ€.
Concurrent with the release of “Give Peace a Chance,” MINDTRAIN/TWISTED will also digitally issue the highly sought-after and previously unreleased mixes of ONOâ€™s #1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play charting single â€œNO, NO, NOâ€ (THE REMIXES) and #2 charting â€œYOUâ€™RE THE ONEâ€ (THE REMIXES). â€œNo, No, Noâ€ includes superlative reconstructions from international superstars Linus Loves, Tom Novy, Eric Kupper, Friscia and Lamboy, Peter Bailey and more. â€œYouâ€™re The Oneâ€ (which was the #6 Billboard Dance track of 2007) includes vibrant re-workings by Bimbo Jones, Richard Morel (aka Morel), Friscia and Lamboy, and Claude Le Gache.
Already the Hot Shot Debut (#43 with a bullet) on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart (Issue Date: 6/7/2008) and previously the #1 Breakout (Issue Date: 5/31/2008), â€œGIVE PEACE A CHANCEâ€ (THE REMIXES) will be released as a series of three digital-only, environmentally-friendly â€œgreenâ€ singles, the third of which will feature a diverse assemblage of international dance/electronic music innovators, galvanizing the familiar and timeless rallying cry: â€œAll we are saying is GIVE PEACE A CHANCE!â€
