Most of the crew succumbed to fatigue and seasickness except Lennon, who was eventually forced to take the yacht's wheel alone for many hours.
He found this terrifying but invigorating, Yes Im Your Angel. It had the effect of both renewing his confidence and making him contemplate the fragility of life. As a result, he began to write new songs and reworked earlier demos. He commented later, "I was so centered after the experience at sea that I was tuned in to the cosmos — and all these songs came!
The couple decided to release their work on the same album, the first time they had done so since 's politically charged Some Time in New York City. In stark contrast to that album, Double Fantasy subtitled A Heart Play was a collection of songs wherein husband and wife would conduct a musical dialogue. The album took its title from a species of freesiaseen in the Bermuda Botanical Gardenswhose name Lennon regarded as a perfect description of his marriage to Ono.
Lennon was also inspired to return to music by his former songwriting partner within The Beatles. Upon hearing former band mate Paul McCartney 's single " Coming Up ," Lennon deemed the song "a good piece of work.
Ono approached producer Jack Douglaswith whom the couple had previously worked, and gave him Lennon's demos to listen to. Lennon wanted to work with different musicians than he had previously, and had Douglas assemble and rehearse the band without telling Yes Im Your Angel who they would be recording with.

Initial critical reaction to the album was largely negative. Stokes found the concept and theme to be "basically misogynist", and Kit Rachlis of the Boston Phoenix admitted to being "annoyed" by Lennon and Ono's assumption "that lots of people care deeply" about them. Inthe album was ranked number 29 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the greatest albums of the s.
Released as a two-disc set, it included a newly remastered copy of the original album along with an alternative version of the album featuring simpler arrangements without the original's lavish production, with cover artwork by Sean Lennon.
