Yoko Ono will share the story of the making of John Lennon’s album “Imagine” in a “landmark publication” with Thames & Hudson.
The book is due for release in October 2018 and will contain “unseen photographs, artefacts and new interviews” with the people who were there when the album was conceived and recorded.
This year Ono belatedly received an official co-credit on the album’s title track, in accordance with Lennon’s wishes.
Ono said: “A lot has been written about the creation of the song, the album and the film of ‘Imagine’, mainly by people who weren’t there, so I’m very pleased and grateful that now, for the first time, so many of the participants have kindly given their time to ‘gimme some truth’ in their own words and pictures.”
Tristan de Lancey, head of illustrated reference at Thames & Hudson, signed the title directly from Ono.
The 60th Annual Grammys will be held on January 28, 2018, and in honor of the milestone, CBS is airing a retrospective TV special about the award show.
Grammys Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special, a star-studded TV extravaganza looking back at 59 years of Grammy history, will air November 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. The two-hour program will include appearances from Paul McCartney, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Sting, among others.
The special will feature archival footage, exclusive interviews and a behind-the-scenes look at some of the award show’s most memorable moments and performances, including McCartney’s Abbey Road medley that also featured Springsteen, Joe Walsh and Dave Grohl at the 2012 ceremony, and Aretha Franklin‘s unexpected operatic performance from the 1998 event.
“As we approach this milestone in Grammy history, we are excited to give music fans a glimpse into what artists, musicians, producers, set designers, and others do to make those unforgettable Grammy Moments,” says Neil Portnow, the Recording Academy’s president and CEO.
“This special will take audiences on a new journey as they relive those extraordinary moments that can only be seen on the GRAMMYs.” Other stars who will appear on the special include Coldplay‘s Chris Martin, Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige, Celine Dion, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran and Keith Urban.
