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.
