When it comes to #CarrieFisher, I never cease to be amazed. The legendary actress established herself as one of the most versatile women to ever take on the Hollywood scene. Whether it was her work on the silver screen, in literature, or invoking tears and laughter in her one-woman show, Carrie Fisher was truly one of the best.
Adding to all that, it's been recently revealed by Sean Ono Lennon that the late icon secretly wrote a song with him a few years prior to her death in December of last year. This woman's talent truly knows no bounds. I mean, we all knew she could sing, but who knew she could also lend her unique talent to music?
Apparently the son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
The new song, co-written by Fisher and Lennon, was recently unearthed after Lennon felt the world needed it now more than ever. The song, titled 'Bird Song,' has been released on SoundCloud. The song features backup vocals by Willow Smith and is available to listen right here, right now:
Lennon also released a statement following the release of the song. Speaking of his writing process with Fisher, why it needed to be heard now, and the hidden truths behind their longtime friendship.
Carrie and I wrote this song years ago. When she died I just felt I had to record it. 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. Anyway... we wrote a song about staying up too late and hearing the birds sing.

Beautiful statement. It's encouraging and heartwarming to still hear such heartfelt and lovely tributes to the fallen icon. Wherever she flies now, we all feel blessed to have had her in our lives - even if it was only for a short while. And thankfully now, we have another little piece to add to our memories to cherish forever and ever.
Thank you, Sean Lennon.
