ABOUT THE ALBUM
blackbird Lennon-McCartney Icons is the first studio album by American singers Billy Davis Jr. and Marilyn McCoo in over 35 years. It was released on April 30, 2021, and is the first album released under business mogul Kathy Ireland's new record label EE1 in partnership with distributor BMG Rights Management. McCoo and Davis credit Ireland and producer Nic Mendoza for bringing the project to life. The duo also felt encouraged to get in a studio due to concerns in the country and similar divisions experienced in the 60s. The duo said it was a civil rights movement that became a human rights movement with a goal to encourage people to come together during trying times.
