We're now one step closer to a free stream of The Beatles' catalog.
The most important rock group in history has held off on Spotify while Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and Nirvana have relented.
But John Lennon's entire solo discography was released on Monday. Those with access to the streaming service are now able to listen to the following albums...
- Milk And Honey
- Plastic Ono Band
- Rock 'N' Roll
- Mind Games
- Some Times In New York City
- Walls and Bridges
...as well as the following compilations:
- Gimme Some Truth (four-disc anthology)
- Signature Box (complete collection plus two discs of non-album singles, outtakes & rare recordings)
- Power To The People: The Hits (best-of collection)
Lennon's solo career was obviously not as impactful as his time with The Big Four, but he was arguably the most successful songwriter post-breakup.
A collection of No. 1 songs — "Imagine," "Whatever Gets You thru the Night," "(Just Like) Starting Over," "Woman" — did nothing but fill a cult following to the brim, and he managed three No. 1 albums — "Imagine," "Walls and Bridges" and "Double Fantasy" — from 1971 to 1980, the year of his death.
Last week, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder released a cover of "Imagine" to help youth in the Eastern Hemisphere.
Heartbeat.FM "creates spaces and opportunities for Palestinian and Israeli youth musicians to build critical awareness, respect and trust while harnessing creative, nonviolent tools for self-expression and social change," according to the organization's website.
The song is currently available for $0.99.
