Over the weekend, Sean Lennon, son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, shared a new song he co-penned with late actress Carrie Fisher. In a statement on his Soundcloud page, Lennon revealed that "Bird Song" -- a piano led ballad about "staying up too late and hearing the birds sing" -- was recorded after the Star Wars heroine passed last December. 

"When she died I just felt I had to record it," Lennon explained. "The lyrics she wrote with me I think are marvelous. Carrie and I used to stay up til dawn chatting and pontificating about life."

The serene tune also features the vocals of Willow Smith, who was referred to by Lennon as a "prodigal angel." The underground star revealed that the current version is an unmixed demo, and was recorded in only a few hours.
