John Malkovich has made a song with Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon

This spoken word piece made me shut up and listen. It's John Malkovich reading Plato's Allegory of the Cave over a pretty nice groove. According to Rolling Stone:
"The track opens with [Sean] Lennon's sparse piano and [Yoko] Ono's distant, distinct vocals creating a minimalist background for Malkovich's text. As Ono's vocals rise up in the mix, Lennon lays down a swinging, jazzy guitar part and the kind of drum beat more often found on a lost funk 45 than an avant-garde recording. The song ends nearly as it begins, with chaotic percussion augmenting piano and Ono's vocals."
Listen to Cryolife 7:14 A.M. in the player below.
