LISTEN: Sean Lennon Sings Carrie Fisher’s Last Song
This weekend, Sean Lennon, son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, released a stunning recording of a song he co-wrote with Carrie Fisher.
The tune, sung by 16-year-old Willow Smith, was penned during one of Lennon and Fisher’s late night hang out sessions.
“Carrie and I wrote this song years ago,” Lennon wrote on his Soundcloud page. “When she died I just felt I had to record it.”
Lennon called Fisher’s lyrics “marvelous,” and said that spending time with her was some of his “best moments.”
“Carrie and I used to stay up til dawn chatting and pontificating about life,” he explained. “We wrote a song about staying up too late and hearing the birds sing.”
