LISTEN: WILLOW SMITH Sings Song Written By CARRIE FISHER And SEAN LENNON!
Sean Ono Lennon, son of The Beatles' John Lennon and Yoko Ono, tapped Willow Smith to interpret the song he composed with Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher before her unexpected death back in December.
"Carrie and I wrote this song years ago. When she died I just felt I had to record it," Sean wrote in the Soundcloud introduction. "This is only a demo unmixed, we only had a few hours to record it. But the lyrics she wrote with me I think are marvelous. Carrie and I used to stay up til dawn chatting and pontificating about life. They were my best moments."
"Willow Smith is a prodigal angel and was generous enough to lend her golden voice to this little tune," he continued.
The track called "Bird Song" talks about "staying up too late and hearing the birds sing."
"Love comes on cat's feet / It circles the corners / It sits by the window and whispers... / 'Mine! Your mine! all mine!" Willow sings.
