The Imagine Project is an album by Herbie Hancock released on June 22, 2010.[2] The album, which was recorded in many locations throughout the world and features collaborations from various artists, was complemented by a documentary about the recording process.[3] Hancock's interpretations of these songs are cross-cultural. His version of "Imagine" was inspired by the Congolese group Konono N°1. The instruments used on "The Times, They Are A' Changin" combine the West African kora with the Celtic flute, fiddle and Uilleann pipes.[4] It was released in CD, digital download and vinyl.
