Singer-songwriter Lynda Kay has made available for audition a new song that takes the name of “The Mask”, and unreleased duet with the late legendary Motörhead leader Lemmy Kilmister.
The ballad features a performance by Lemmy on a vocal footprint that is very reminiscent of Johnny Cash in this debut single from Kay’s new album, Black & Gold, scheduled for release in October.
About this song, Lemmy started writing it in 1979 and only finished it in 2009, in a studio meeting with Kay, who only now decided to release it.
“BIG NEWS! The first single on my new double album Black & Gold is a the long lost duet I wrote and recorded with my dear friend Lemmy of Motörhead called “The Mask.” I’m so proud of this song, hope you enjoy it too ♠️💛”
On 28 December 2015, four days after his 70th birthday, Lemmy died at his apartment in Los Angeles from prostate cancer, cardiac arrhythmia and congestive heart failure.
Motörhead announced his death on their official Facebook page later that day. According to the band, his cancer had only been diagnosed two days prior to his death.
