Sean Lennon has joined forces with Beach Boys co-founder Al Jardine to record a new, mainly A cappella rendition of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s global peace anthem, “Give Peace A Chance.” The two gathered at Lennon’s New York City apartment, along with Jardine’s collaborator Larry Dvoskin, to cut the track, which will be among the many works, starting today (June 11th), that will be projected on the side of London’s Tate Museum.

The project, which is being spearheaded by Bono’s advocacy organization — the ONE — is the kickoff to the week-long “agit8″, an artistic statement geared to force the world leaders meeting next week for the G8 World Summit to take a stand against world poverty. Artists are urged to record a new rendition of a notable protest song. Jardine, on his own, has also recorded and submitted his version of Pete Seeger and Lee Hays’ folk classic “If I Had A Hammer.”
