Disconnected

Album: Everything Changes (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Lennon told Rolling Stone about this song's exotic vibe and use of sitar. "A little Zeppelin influence there," he said. "It's one of my favorite songs. I wasn't sure I could write a song like that. With 'Just for You' and 'Disconnected,' those are a lot more rock-orientated than stuff I've done before. Although I can belt it out, I just don't write songs that enable me to do that. It's nice to get that back into the fray a little bit. I'd like to do more, get a little heavier."
