In Love With Life
by Hifi Sean (featuring Yoko Ono)

Songfacts®:

  • Hifi Sean is Sean Dickson, the founder and frontman of The Soup Dragons. For much of the '00s and '10s, he was a DJ, doing most of his work in London where he soaked up the latest dance sounds. In 2016, he released the album Ft., named because it features a different artist on each of the 13 tracks.

    "In Love With Life" features Yoko Ono, who does spoken word vocals. "It's a simple message, in a way so simple that it's powerful," Dickson said in a Songfacts interview. "The idea is that when you enjoy and respect something, you are destroying it at the same time. It was a huge honor to work with Yoko and create the track. I'm very proud of it and the way it turned out as I cannot think of a single song that sounds anything like it. Unique and mesmerizing."
