Yoko Ono Releases Video For Orchestral ‘Walking On Thin Ice’ For Her 83rd Birthday

in New Music,News

Yoko Ono turned 83 today and celebrated with a new orchestral version of ‘Walking On Thin Ice’ with a potent video reflecting on the absence in her life since the death of John Lennon.

Yoko was 47 years old when John Lennon was murdered out the front of their New York home at The Dakota at 1 W 72nd St, New York. The original ‘Walking On Thin Ice’ was the last thing John and Yoko recorded. They had finished the song on December 8, 1980. Hours later John was dead.

The new version of ‘Walking On Thin Ice’ was produced by Danny Tenaglia who previously remixed Yoko Ono’s ‘Walking On Thin Ice’ in 2003 and 2013. Both remix packages went to #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart.

For the new version “Danny created and delivered his “Walking On Thin Ice (Maestro Mix)” and it was an unexpected pleasure when Yoko received it – abandoning his usual dance style for a more poignant and elegant orchestral remix.

“Released on Yoko’s 83rd birthday, 18 Feb 2016, this new video contains original camera footage from the music video that Yoko directed herself in 1981 for the original version of ‘Walking On Thin Ice’, much of it previously unseen”.

The new version is on Yoko’s new album ‘Yes I’m A Witch Too’.
