Of course, we aren’t really pissed at Yoko and truly wish her the best,” Johnson says. “We just couldn’t resist having a little fun in the irreverent spirit of The Beatles!”

NASHVILLE, TN (PRWEB) July 15, 2013

The breakup of the Beatles in 1970 was devastating to millions of fans all over the world, and now George Johnson’s “Still Pissed At Yoko” video and single recaptures the mood and feel of the Fab Four.

From Mellotrons to Bach trumpets, hooky melodies and storytelling lyrics, Johnson, the veteran Nashville singer, songwriter, and producer, magically transports the listener with this single back to the late-1960s Beatles heyday while remaining completely modern. The video has even more powerful images, both in black-and-white and color, of Sgt. Pepper-style clothing, Hofner left-handed bass guitars, of the Swinging London of the mid-Sixties, the Summer of Love, and the psychedelic influences that followed.

George and longtime collaborator John Colgin wrote “Still Pissed At Yoko,” which is the debut single and title track of his second album, a remarkably varied 7-song EP recorded with many of Nashville’s legendary session players and singers. One of those was the late Gordon Stoker, the beloved leader of Elvis Presley’s backup vocal quartet the Jordanaires.

“Of course, we aren’t really pissed at Yoko and truly wish her the best,” Johnson says. “We just couldn’t resist having a little fun in the irreverent spirit of The Beatles!”

Combining modern digital technology with vintage audio and state-of-the-art animation, both the video and single “Still Pissed At Yoko” are an astonishing and delightful experience to see and hear. This is George Johnson at his very best, and for a man with his huge talents that’s saying a great deal.

Fans who adored the Beatles then will love revisiting treasured memories, while younger listeners and viewers will thrill to see and hear that kind of magic for the very first time. The single and music video are currently available for download on the Apple iTunes Store and the album, to be released in August, is available for pre-order.
