Yoko Ono is teasing "Take Me to the Land of Hell" tracks on her website.

The Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band is releasing "Take Me to the Land of Hell" on Sept. 17, but fans will be pleased to hear that Yoko Ono will post one track on the album on the band's website each week, where it will remain until it is replaced by another on the following Monday.

"Cheshire Cat Cry," which features Lenny Kravitz, follows the previously teased single "Moonbeams" as the first track to debut as part of the great unveil. On the song, Ono sings, "We, the expendable people of the United States, hold these dreams to be self-destructive."

In an interview about the album and her continued efforts in activism and the arts, Ono told HuffPost Entertainment that she was delighted by the idea of debuting the songs in such a manner. "That wasn't my idea, someone here thought of it but I love that idea," the 80-year-old said. "I thought, 'Great, do it!' It's really great that you can do it that way because then people have the chance to think about the songs."

"Take Me to the Land of Hell" was produced by Ono, Sean Lennon and Yuka Honda and features Nels Cline, tUnEyArDs, Questlove and Andrew Wyatt alongside Plastic Ono Band collaborators Cornelius and Cibo Matto. Mike D, Adrock and Keigo Oyamada contributed remixes.

Ono's last studio album, "Between My Head and the Sky," debuted in 2009 to favorable reviews.
