The highly anticipated John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes app will be available on November 14 in Apple's App Store.
It was originally supposed to be released this week but the launch date had to be pushed back a week.
The island should get some great free publicity as people download the app.
The Bermuda Tapes follows Lennon’s trip to Bermuda and the music he recorded for his Double Fantasy album.
People who download the app will be able to listen to demos of songs he recorded while in Bermuda. Som of those songs include: Woman, (Just Like) Starting Over, Nobody Told Me, I’m Losing You and Dear Yoko among others.
Bermuda plays prominently in the app as there are several interactive elements such as sailing to Bermuda from the US and visiting a disco and other places he visited while on the island.
All the revenue from the sale of the app (price not available yet) will go towards WhyHunger’s Imagine There’s No Hunger campaign.
Yoko Ono, Lennon’s wife, said in a press release in September: “I think the album app captures the sense of discovery and the artistic dialogue that John and I shared at the time and provides a new way to help us imagine a world without hunger.”
On its website, WhyHunger says its global campaign was created to help hungry children grow the food they need to change their lives. The campaign takes place every November and December in partnership with Hard Rock International and Ono.
The spirit of the campaign is built on John Lennon’s vision of a world at peace and free from hunger. The essence of “Imagine” is all about helping children tap into their own power to change their lives by not just meeting their immediate nutritional needs each day but by engaging them as active participants in growing food in the school yard and in communities and villages throughout the world helping change their lives forever.
