A new video for “Look at Me” features intimate, never-before-seen 8mm film footage of John Lennon and Yoko Ono Lennon captured at home in 1968.
William Wareing and his crew filmed the “Look At Me” video, which features black and white and color footage on “home movie” filmed between takes of “Film No. 5” (“Smile”) (conceived by Yoko) and “Two Virgins” (conceived by John and Yoko).
“In the video … we get a glimpse into the life of John and Yoko and behind-the-scenes of their filmmaking,” Capitol/UMe said in a statement. “We see John playing acoustic guitar in between takes, his drum skin from the Sgt. Pepper’s album cover (designed by Joe Ephgrave) and his psychedelic upright piano (painted by Marijke Koger and Simon Posthuma from the Dutch design collective the Fool), the film crew setting up shots, Yoko dancing around the swimming pool while John plays his steel string and a peek into their domestic life and the undeniable connection that bound them together.”
“Look at Me” originally appeared on John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band in 1970. The new “Ultimate Mix” version is part of the upcoming 50th anniversary box set that contains eight discs, 159 tracks, a hardback book and memorabilia.
John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band-The Ultimate Collection, is due out on April 23 via Capitol/UMe.
