“GOLIATH” CO-STAR LYNDA KAY TO RELEASE LOST DUET RECORDED WITH THE LATE LEMMY KILMISTER OF MOTÖRHEAD
Gretsch singer-songwriter Lynda Kay has a new song coming out August 23rd with the late great Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister of Motörhead. The duet titled The Mask is far from Kilmister’s well-regarded metal fare, this poignant Willie Nelson-style ballad, paired with Lynda Kay’s harmonious, yearning voice, reveals a glimpse of his melancholy side, reminiscent of Rick Rubin American Recordings with Johnny Cash. The song was believed to have been lost, but was recently recovered.
Kilmister had begun writing The Mask in 1979 and finished it with Lynda Kay in 2009. It will be the first single from Lynda Kay’s upcoming double album Black & Gold. The album features 20 original and cover songs crossing such genres as early 60’s mid-century jazz and classic Bacharach pop to 70’s roots-rock and Memphis-soul and was produced by her husband Jonny Coffin (Coffin Case). Musicians performing on her albums include members of bands from John Legend, Jeff Beck, Brian Wilson, Tedeschi Trucks, Rita Coolidge, Jackson Browne, and Jenny Lewis.
Some of the songs from Lynda Kay’s Black & Gold album will be featured this October 2019 on the Golden-Globe Award Winning Series Goliath on Amazon Prime when Lynda Kay co-stars as herself in five of the eight Episodes with the star of the show Billy Bob Thornton.
