LONDON (Reuters) - John Lennon`s widow Yoko Ono has recorded a dance version of the late Beatle`s final song, her record label says.
Ono has teamed up with the Pet Shop Boys for a dance remix of her husband`s song "Walking on Thin Ice".
"It`s not clear when it`s going to be released," a spokeswoman for Parlophone said, adding: "I`ve heard it, it`s very good".
Lennon was shot dead by a crazed fan, Mark Chapman, outside his Manhattan apartment building in December 1980. After marrying in 1969, Ono and the rock icon had moved to New York in the early 1970s.
The couple had been working on the track before he died and two months afterwards the record was released, making it to number 35 in the UK charts.
The single will get its first public performance in the United States on Monday according to the website of disc jockey Danny Tenaglia, who remixed the record.
Ono will premiere the record with Tenaglia at New York`s Arc club on the eve of her 70th birthday.
Lennon once described Ono as "the world`s most famous unknown artist", though many fans of the Beatles dubbed her Dragon Lady and blamed her for the legendary group`s break up.
They read good books, and quote, but never learn
a language other than the scream of rocket-burn
Our straighter talk is drowned but ironclad;
elections, money, empire, oil and Dad.
