About Blueprint for a Sunrise

Blueprint for a Sunrise is a concept album of experimental feminist rock by Yoko Ono. It features live tracks, samples and remixes of previous recordings, and a sequel. The recurring theme throughout is the suffering of women. In the liner notes, Ono talks about the continuing relevance of feminism and "waking up in the middle of the night hearing thousands of women screaming". It did not chart but was critically acclaimed and became an underground hit. As of September 2009, the album had sold around 3,000 copies in the USA. The album is currently out of print on CD.
