John Malkovich's Collaboration with Ric Ocasek: Good Old-Fashioned Weirdness

Not Advanced, necessarily, but I'm down with this:
John Malkovich: actor, director, portal vessel, sonic explorer. The performer has teamed with an eclectic group of musicians – including Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon, the Cars' Ric Ocasek, OMD, Young the Giant, Dweezil Zappa and the Dandy Warhols – to create Like a Puppet Show, a Record Store Day Black Friday vinyl exclusive. The album finds Malkovich reciting classical musician Eric Alexandrakis' version of Plato's Allegory of the Cave over original material composed and produced by Alexandrakis, paired with bizarre photos of Malkovich taken by Sandro.
 An eclectic group indeed! I just don't know how David Byrne wasn't involved.
