SOTD: Yoko Ono - The Soul Got Out Of The Box

The SOTD is from Yoko Ono. The Soul Got Out Of The Box was one of the songs in my Discover Weekly Spotify playlist. I was immediately intrigued by the voice of an older female singing the intro of the song. And, I was positively surprised to find out that voice belongs to Yoko Ono, the famous/notorious 5th Beatle!

The Soul Got Out Of The Box was first part her 2001 album, Blueprint For A Sunrise. For this remix, Yoko Ono enlisted the help of Portugal. The Man to put their spin of the song. I very much prefer this refined & acoustic version of the song. The track has something mysterious and it easily gets stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Not because it has a catchy tune, but because of the feeling it gives you. “Hello doomsday, could you be my friend?” is part of the chorus. I mean, do you need to say more?

The remix of The Soul Got Out Of The Box is the first single of Ono’s new album Yes, I’m A Witch Too, which will be released on February 12th.
