MAIN MAN RECORDS presents

cover art

RELEASE DATE: JANUARY 13th, 2015


There is arguably no artist as misunderstood as Yoko Ono. "Cut Pieces: A Tribute to Yoko Ono" deconstructs and reimagines an essential collection of skillfully constructed pop/rock songs. Presented in their own context and in their own terms, the tribute soars free from the superficial sensationalism that still seems to follow her. The album presents 16 of Ms. Ono's compositions, in styles ranging from pop, rock, country, blues and new wave.
