Julian Lennon, John Lennon’s eldest son, is planning to sell a series of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) with digitized Lennon and Beatles memorabilia from his personal collection. Therefore, he will offer music fans the chance to “own a piece of music history” in an online auction on Julien’s Auctions on February 7.
More about John Lennon’s NFT series
To begin, the NFT collection includes Paul McCartney’s handwritten notes from the writing of ‘Hey Jude,’. This piece was originally written for Julian to comfort him during John and Cynthia Lennon’s divorce. Besides, the starting bid for this NFT is $30,000 (£22,258).
Additionally, other items on display include an Afghan coat worn by John Lennon in the Beatles film Magical Mystery Tour; a Gibson Les Paul guitar gifted to his son by the late artist; and the black cape worn by Lennon in the film Help.
Positively, Julian Lennon’s White Feather Foundation will benefit from a portion of the proceeds from sales of this NFT collection.
Lenon further added, “This is a slow rollout over the next year or so of quite a few items. I have a lot of projects happening this year, including a new album, and these [items] tie into a few of them. I can’t really say much more — you’ll understand why when it happens. The first release will be April 8, and that will inform you of the campaign going forward.”
Furthermore, bidders will have the opportunity to purchase NFT versions of the memorabilia in the auction. Meanwhile, Julian will keep the physical items from his collection. Each item will be presented as an audio-visual collectable and will feature narration by John Lennon’s son and imagery of the item in question.
