John Lennon, Sailing, The Bermuda Tapes (video)

JOHN LENNON: THE BERMUDA TAPES - A new, groundbreaking interactive album app is available on the App Store now. The app tells the story of John Lennon's life changing journey sailing through a mid-Atlantic storm to Bermuda in June 1980, the profound creative discovery during his time on the island and the artistic collaboration from abroad with wife Yoko Ono at home in New York leading to the release of Double Fantasy: A Heart Play. Integrating excerpts of Lennon's demo tapes recorded in Bermuda with innovative game play and intimate documentary storytelling, John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes is a thrilling, unprecedented experience for music and technology fans alike. And to help imagine John's vision for a better world, all net proceeds from the project will support the non-profit WhyHunger and its Imagine There's No Hunger campaign to combat global childhood hunger and poverty through sustainable agriculture.
