Imagine is the second solo studio album by British singer-songwriter John Lennon, originally released in September 1971 via Apple Records.

Imagine was co-produced by John Lennon, Yoko Ono and Phil Spector and is a much more “lush” sounding album than it’s stripped down predecessor, John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band, released in December 1970.

Lennon recorded the album from early to mid 1971 at Ascot Sound Studios in the grounds of his home at Tittenhurst Park, Abbey Road Studios in London. and the Record Plant in New York City, with supporting musicians that included his ex-Beatles bandmate George Harrison, keyboardist Nicky Hopkins, bassist Klaus Voormann and drummers Alan White and Jim Keltner.

The albums lyrics reflect peace, love, politics, Lennon's experience with primal scream therapy, and, following a period of high personal tensions, an attack on his former writing partner Paul McCartney in "How Do You Sleep?".

The opening and title track from the album “Imagine” has become one of the worlds most beloved songs of all time, and is regarded as Lennon’s signature song. The lyrics and sentiments in this song are just as relevant in 2020 as they were when originally recorded in 1971.

The album topped the album charts in the US, UK and Australia and is now considered, along with John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band, one of finest solo albums. In 2012, the album was voted at #80 on Rolling Stone magazine list of the 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2018 expanded edition on 180 gram heavyweight black vinyl with remastered audio remixed from the original master tapes, printed inner sleeves and alternative takes and demos on LP2, pressed in Europe via Apple Records.
