Fifty years after its release, Lennon and Ono’s The Wedding Album is being reissued

Marking 50 years since their iconic wedding in Gibraltar, Yoko Ono has announced the reissue of her 1969 collaborative album with John Lennon – aptly titled The Wedding Album. 

Due for release on March 22 via Secretly Canadian and Chimera Music, The Wedding Album is the third of the couple’s collaborative albums that have featured as part of the ongoing Yoko Ono Reissue Project. The series was launched in 2016 and has an aim of remastering and reissuing all of Ono’s eleven recorded works.

Marking 50 years since their marriage in 1969, Secretly Canadian and Chimera Music are set to reissue John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s iconic LP The Wedding Album. 

Originally released in 1969, the year of their wedding, The Wedding Album marked the couple’s third collaborative LP. It came in a box filled with wedding mementoes; photographs of the ceremony, drawings by the couple, a copy of their wedding certificate, a picture of their cake and more.

The two labels have recreated many of these details and will see the album reissued in limited-edition white vinyl, plus on CDs and digital formats.

Last October saw the release of Ono’s most recent album Warzone. Three of Yoko Ono’s LPs were reissued as part of the project in 2016: 1968’s Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins, 1969’s Unfinished Music No. 2: Life with the Lions, and 1970’s Plastic Ono Band. The following year, Secretly Canadian and Chimera gave 1971’s Fly, 1973’s Approximately Infinite Universe, and 1973’s Feeling the Space their own reissues, too.
