Avant garde musician and artist Yoko Ono is readying her new album, Take Me To the Land of Hell, for its September 17th release and the 80-year-old has a wide range of names appearing with her on the project. Alongside Ono and her Plastic Ono Band, there are tracks that feature Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, as well as hip-hop mainstays Questlove of the Roots and Ad-Rock and Mike D, the surviving members of the Beastie Boys.

The two former Beasties appear on one of the album’s most-anticipated tracks, “Bad Dancer,” which has already been previewed online. The electronic song marks the first recorded appearance of Ad-Rock and Mike D since the death of their bandmate Adam “MCA” Yauch, in May of 2012.

“The energy I have right now, and the desire to continue to make as much great work as I can, is really moving me forward all the time,” Ono said via press statement. “This album is the culmination of a lot of ideas I’ve been having over the last few years and I feel proud to release it at such an exciting time in my life.”
