This autumn I’ll be releasing some new music. Three new songs, each in the form of a letter. The first is a love-letter – to my favourite Beatle – Yoko Ono.

* there is another connection: in 1975, Sedaka had a hit in the US with ‘The Immigrant’, dedicated to John Lennon and his ongoing battle to be allowed to remain in the US.
We are grateful to our sponsors.
