John Lennon and Yoko Ono's 1984 album "Milk and Honey," the only original Lennon album released after Lennon's death, is set for an expanded reissue tomorrow (Oct. 23) from Capitol Records. The new version has been digitally remastered and includes three bonus tracks, as well as excerpts from Lennon's final interview.

The updated "Milk and Honey" will include as bonus tracks a Lennon-sung version of Ono's "Every Man Has a Woman Who Loves Him" and home-recorded takes of the album's opening track, "I'm Stepping Out," and Ono's "Double Fantasy" tune "I'm Moving On." The album concludes with audio excerpts from Lennon's last interview, taped hours before his assassination on Dec. 8, 1980.

The re-release comes just three weeks after TNT's live broadcast of Come Together - A Night for John Lennon's Words & Music, a benefit tribute to Lennon that was re-dedicated to the people of New York in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Capitol re-released three Lennon albums -- "Imagine," Plastic Ono Band," and "Double Fantasy" -- last year, the latter pair hitting stores on Oct. 9, 2000, what would have been Lennon's 60th birthday. The original release of "Milk and Honey" peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 in March 1984.
