Yes, I'm a Witch is a remix album by Yoko Ono released on February 6, 2007 by Apple Records and Astralwerks. Artists invited to contribute were asked to select a song from Ono's back catalogue, and were then presented with all the necessary elements to create a remix/cover to their desires. According to the press release, nearly every artist chose only the vocals, and created entirely new backing tracks to demonstrate the versatility of Ono's compositions.

The song choices span Ono's career from her early experimental work with John Lennon in the late 1960s through to her solo career in the 70s and 80s. The album draws its title from a 1974 Ono song featured on her album A Story, a track which is featured on the album in a reworked version by The Brother Brothers.

A follow-up compilation of dance remixes, Open Your Box was released on April 24.
