John Lennon interactive album app due for release

A new interactive album app called John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes will be released on November 5.

The app, which is to be launched exclusively through the iTunes App Store, is directed by Michael Epstein, who previously wrote and directed by documentary, LENNONYC.

The app is based on Lennon's 1980 visit to Bermuda, and his collaborations with Ono, which informed the Double Fantasy album. According to a report in Billboard, users will be able to navigate stormy seas to Bermuda, visit a disco, and hear Lennon's demos of tracks like “Woman”, “Starting Over”, “I’m Losing You”, “(Just Like) Starting Over”, “Nobody Told Me” and “Dear Yoko".

"Writing Double Fantasy was a very exciting time creatively for both John and me," said Yoko Ono. "I think the album app captures the sense of discovery and the artistic dialogue that John and I shared at that time and provides a new way to help us imagine a world without hunger."
