American songwriters Cass McCombs and Steve Gunn shared two collaborative tracks titled “Sweet Lucy” and “Wild Mountain Thyme“. All profits will be donated to the NAACP legal defense fund as well as The Okra Project (www.theokraproject.
“This 7″ was intended to be sold exclusively at our now-canceled West Coast tour,” McCombs explained. “My side is a song written by Michael Hurley, Steve’s side is a traditional Scottish/Irish song. We did them both the same day, as quickly as possible, in a studio in Burbank. It was supposed to be a souvenir. I suppose it still is, but for a different reason. We decided to release a 7” of them on Juneteenth and donate proceeds to these organizations supporting black lives to stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter Movement.”
