Stop. Put down anything you are drinking. 

Yoko Ono has released a new video and the song will likely make you laugh so hard any liquid you are consuming may shoot out your nose.

Ono has released a new video for her song “Warzone.”

According to Newsweek:

The arrangement is eerie and minimalistic, with machine-gun splatters accompanying macabre piano notes. Ono's vocals become increasingly anguished as the song progresses: "If you hear me, please help us," she sings at the end.

If I hear it, please help me. This is painful.



More from Newsweek:

"The world is so messed up," Ono says in an accompanying press release. "Things are very difficult for everybody. It's a warzone that we are living in..." She adds: "I like to create things in a new way. Every day things change."

Ono doesn't mention Donald Trump directly, but she has previously expressed abject horror at the 45th U.S. president: Shortly after his election, she tweeted a 19-second recording of herself crying out in agony.

Yeah, she’s kind of an expert in that whole ‘agony’ thing. 

Oh, and the song was originally recorded by Yoko in 1996 (it's a re-make), that would be before Trump was elected president.

More good news folks, Yoko plans to release a new track every Tuesday leading up to the album release in October.

Just in time to scare the neighborhood kids by playing it out your windows on Halloween night.
