Yoko Ono Lennon and Universal Music Group are delighted to announce that in celebration of what would have been John Lennon’s 74th birthday on Thursday (Oct 9th), John Lennon’s entire solo music is now available on streaming music services including Spotify, Rdio, Deezer and Beats Music.
The catalog includes eight studio albums — Milk And Honey, Plastic Ono Band, Rock ‘N’ Roll, Imagine, Mind Games, Some Time In New York City, Walls And Bridges and Double Fantasy — and three compilation albums — Gimme Some Truth, a four-disc anthology collection; Signature Box, complete collection: eight studio albums plus two discs of non-album singles, outtakes & rare recordings; and Power To The People: The Hits best of collection.
