Lennon’s Bermuda Tapes’ app goes on sale worldwide
A new smart phone app that traces musician John Lennon’s journey to Bermuda in 1980, and his two-month stay — including demos of songs he recorded here — has gone on sale worldwide.
The interactive app ‘John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes’ was released through the iTunes App Store yesterday. It allows users to navigate a stormy ocean to reach Bermuda and see places Mr Lennon visited while on the Island, including a disco, and hear demos of songs he recorded in Bermuda, such as ‘Woman’, ‘Nobody Told Me’ and ‘I’m Losing You’.
The former Beatle named the last album he released during his lifetime ‘Double Fantasy’ after the name of a flower he came across while strolling in the Bermuda Botanical Gardens.
Revenue from the app will go towards WhyHunger’s ‘Imagine There’s No Hunger’ campaign. The campaign, in partnership with Mr Lennon’s wife Yoko Ono and Hard Rock International, has helped communities grow enough food to provide over 7.2 million meals for children in 22 countries.
