Details released on second Yoko remix project: Open Your Box.

2007 truly is the year of the witch, and the world is finally embracing the music creations of Mrs. Yoko Ono.  It seems that Mrs. Lennon has really been a busy woman as of late.  Her second disc of remixes, Open Your Box,  is due out this spring (April 24, 2007).  I know not all Beatle fans are Yoko fans, but if this is disc is half as good as Yes, I’m a Witch, then Yoko fans will have a heck of a lot to celebrate. 

It looks like Yoko has assembled a who’s who of collaborators on this second remix/dance project entitled Open Your Box.  Again, this may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we happen to dig it.  By the way if you haven’t gotten Yes I’m a Witch yet….what are you waiting for.  It is a gem of a CD.  This newly announced disc looks just as tasty though.

Here’s what we’ve read.

Yoko Ono has assembled another impressive guest list to follow up her Yes, I’m a Witch reinvention album. Basement Jaxx, Pet Shop Boys, and Felix Da Housecat all contribute to remix disc Open Your Box, which Astralwerks will release April 24.

In contrast to Yes, I’m a Witch, on which collaborators kept Ono’s original vocals and wrote new music in accompaniment, the remixes on Open Your Box are slightly more traditional. They take the originals– including “Everyman Everywoman” twice and “Walking on Thin Ice” three times– and aim straight for the dance floor.

Open Your Box:
01 You’re the One (Bimbo Jones Main Mix)
02 Everyman Everywoman (Basement Jaxx Classic Mix)
03 Walking on Thin Ice (Felix Da Housecat’s Tribute Mix)
04 Hell in Paradise (Peter Rauhofer Reconstruction Mix)
05 Give Me Something (Morel’s Pink Noise Vocal Mix)
06 Walking on Thin Ice (Pet Shop Boys Electro Mix)
07 I Don’t Know Why (Sapphirecut Mix)
08 Yang Yang (Orange Factory Down & Dirty Mix)
09 Will I (John Creamer & Stephan K Mix)
10 Everyman Everywoman (Murk Space Mix)
11 Kiss Kiss Kiss (Superchumbo Main Mix)
12 Open Your Box (Orange Factory Club Mix)
13 Walking on Thin Ice (Danny Tenaglia Walked Across the Lake Mix)
14 Give Peace a Chance (DJ Dan Vocal Mix)
