Sean Lennon is busy. He’s already released two albums this year – Mystical Weapons, the self-titled debut LP of his improv group with Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, and the soundtrack to Alter Egos – but there’s another two near completion for 2013 release. “I’m still working on this Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger record,” he revealed to music.cbc.com at the start of the year, referring to the long-awaited LP he’s making with Charlotte Kemp Muhl (partly mixed by Dave Fridmann). “We’re getting closer to the mix stage so that will be coming out hopefully soon and I’m also finishing – actually I’m pretty much done – with the recording aspect of producing my mom’s album. It’s the second album I’m producing for… Plastic Ono Band…it’s sort of her 80th anniversary album.”
For the Plastic Ono Band’s second revival record Yoko and Sean have collaborated with Yuko Araki and Keigo Oyamada from Cornelius, Lenny Kravitz (photo by Sean above from last year’s sessions), Nels Cline, Julian Lage and tUnE-yArDs – all according to Sean’s social media updates.
