From Planet Rock.
A previously unheard country duet called ‘The Mask’ featuring late Motörhead legend Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister has resurfaced.
Texan country singer-songwriter Lynda Kay shared ‘The Mask’ yesterday as a taster for her upcoming new studio album ‘Black & Gold’.
Lemmy had started writing ‘The Mask’ way back in 1979 and finished it with Kay three decades later in 2009. The song was believed to have been lost, but after being rediscovered it has now finally been unveiled to the public.
Far removed from Motörhead’s searing heavy metal sounds, ‘The Mask’ is reminiscent of Johnny Cash’s cover of Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Hurt’ in its tone and style.
Showcasing Lemmy’s tender side, the heartrending three-minute song sees Lemmy trade lines with Kay before they join forces for the rousing finale.
Two years ago in August 2017, Motörhead’s then previously unheard cover of David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ was unveiled to the world.
Lifted from the compilation album ‘Under Cöver’, ‘Heroes’ was recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 with producer Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs Motörhead recorded together before Lemmy’s untimely death in December 2015.
Motörhead’s seminal albums ‘Overkill’ and Bomber’ are being reissued alongside an expansive ‘1979’ box set on Friday 25th October to celebrate their 40th anniversary.
