Yoko Ono is to release two 10-inch vinyl records to mark her 82nd birthday – ‘Antony & Yoko’ and ‘Yoko Ono & John Zorn’.

The singer collaborates with Antony Hegarty and John Zorn for the records, which will be released on February 18 as part of a Yoko Ono series that has included collaborations with Tune-Yards, Iggy Pop, and Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon.

On ‘Antony & Yoko’, Ono and Hegarty perform a vocal duet over piano on song ‘I Love You Earth’, while ‘Yoko Ono & John Zorn’ features an “intense and imaginative” improvisation, ‘Blink’.

Ono previously performed ‘Blink’ live on WNYC at the station’s Greene Space in November 2012. Proceeds from the sale of the song will go to The Stone, John Zorn’s non-profit New York performance space.

Ono’s birthday will also see the release of a new book by Bob Gruen and Judy Denberg called ‘See Hear Yoko’. It will include black and white photos of the singer, as well as 25 years’ worth of interviews.
