It will be released on his 80th birthday...

John Lennon's work will be remembered on new collection 'GIMME SOME TRUTH. THE ULTIMATE MIXES'.

The Beatles icon and peace activist would have turned 80 on October 9th, and this album will coincide with the celebrations of his life.

A new collection executive produced by Yoko Ono Lennon and produced by Sean Ono Lennon, it contains 36 songs in all.

The pair worked alongside Grammy award winning engineer Paul Hicks for the project, completely remixing the songs from scratch.

Designed as an audiophile experience, the team went back to the original tapes, cleaning them up before completion at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles.

Mastered at - where else? - Abbey Road studios in London, it will be available on a number of different formats, with the deluxe edition containing a 126 page book.

“John was a brilliant man with a great sense of humour and understanding,” writes Yoko Ono Lennon in the accompanying book. “He believed in being truthful and that the power of the people will change the world. And it will. All of us have the responsibility to visualize a better world for ourselves and our children. The truth is what we create. It’s in our hands.”

'GIMME SOME TRUTH. THE ULTIMATE MIXES' will be released on October 9th.
