Career

Sean Lennon first recited a story in his mother’s (Yoko Ono) 1981 album ‘Season of Glass.’ This started a trend for him as he began appearing regularly in his mother’s albums and singles. He collaborated with his mother in her solo albums ‘It’s Alright’, ‘Onobox’, and ‘Starpeace’, providing vocals. In 1988, Lennon appeared in the Michael Jackson starrer ‘Moonwalker’. He co-wrote the lyrics for Lenny Kravitz’s solo album ‘Mama Said’ in 1991. He continued assisting his mother on her albums and also formed a band.

Lennon’s mother Yoko Ono invited the two founders, Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori, of the band ‘Cibo Matto’ to help her remix the single ‘Talking to the Universe’. Honda met Lennon and she invited him to play bass for their band and join them in their tour. Lennon started touring with the band and contributed to their extended play ‘Super Relax’ as a vocalist and bassist.

Lennon signed a contract with Grand Royal Records, which according to him was the only recording company which didn’t care about his family background, something that he found to be very rare. His very first solo album ‘Into the Sun’ was released under their banner in 1998. Spike Jonze directed the album and it was produced under the guidance of Lennon’s then-girlfriend and ‘Cibo Matto’ co-founder Yuka Honda. The album received mixed ratings from leading music guides; it was given a two-and-half rating out of five by Allmusic while Los Angeles Times and New Rolling Stone Album Guide gave it a three-and-half rating. The album peaked at number 153 on the Billboard 200 chart and Lennon spent a couple of years touring, promoting the album.

During the early 2000s, Lennon’s popularity began to wane. He signed a contract with a new label, Capitol Records, after the previous engagement with Royal Records ended. His first single ‘Dead Meat’ from his next studio album ‘Friendly Fire’ was out in February 2006. The album itself was released in October that year and Lennon appeared in the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ to perform ‘Dead Meat’. According to Lennon, the album was about “love and betrayal.” He dedicated it to a friend who had died. The album peaked at number 152 on the US Billboard 200 chart and spent 43 weeks on the French albums chart. It won a silver certification. The album contained eleven tracks including the French 2007 reissue bonus track ‘L'éclipse.’ It received positive reviews from all the leading music guides. From Mojo, Rolling Stone, and Uncut, it received four-star ratings, whereas the likes of ‘Being There Magazine,’ The Music Box, and Twisted Ear gave it three-and-half stars.

Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl formed their own music label named ‘Chimera’ and later formed a band ‘The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger’. They released their debut single ‘Jardin Du Luxembourg’ from their first album ‘The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger (Acoustic Sessions)’ in 2010. They released two more albums later, ‘La Carotte Bleue’ in 2011 and ‘Midnight Sun’ in 2014.
