About the album

Yoko Ono in an interview in 1996: "It was incredibly exciting. I basically delegated (the work) to them, and every track came back to me as a surprise; it came to me as a total, beautiful surprise.

Q: "About your music, when I listened to 'Franklin Summer' it really has no recognizable language. Would you say that there are emotions that can only be expressed with sounds rather than words?"

Yoko Ono: "I think certain things you can't really express in words ... it's nice to include that sound in music."

Q: "On the CD Sean says, 'Now is her time. People are more ready.' I also feel that you're getting a lot of attention and praise right now. Do you think that this is your time?"

Yoko Ono: "I don't know yet. When my work was being attacked and criticized and was not recognized, what was most important to me was that I produced work that I was satisfied with, and I got a kick out of that. And that was going on for 25 to 30 years, so if now someone says for two months they love my work, I don't feel like 'this is it'."
