Basement Jaxx Team Up With Ono For New Album

British dance group BASEMENT JAXX have recruited YOKO ONO for an unlikely duet on their forthcoming album.
The Where's Your Head At? hitmakers - comprising of Felix Burton and Simon Ratcliffe - admit they have been longtime admirers of John Lennon's singer/artist widow and were delighted when she accepted their proposal to record a track together for their fifth studio disc Scars.
So the pair flew out to New York to work with Ono - but the trip proved to be much more productive than they had planned, and they ended up collaborating with two other artists during their stay.
Burton tells Billboard.com, "I wanted to record Yoko Ono. That was the reason we went out there (to New York), and then Yo! Majesty and Santigold (collaborations) fell into place along with that."
