NEW YORK, Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Julian Lennon was in NYC recently recording with James Scott Cook, a new artist partner of Julian Lennon's new company 'theRevolution'.

Initially, Julian was scheduled to sing a few background vocals on one of James' songs titled 'LUCY', but during the recording, and with the news of Lucy Vodden's passing fresh on everyone's minds, Julian suggested that the track be released as a digital charity single, in honor of the memory of Lucy, with proceeds being donated to charities that support research for a cure for Lupus, in Lucy Vodden's name. (Lucy Vodden, is a childhood friend of Julian who inspired Julian to draw a picture of her, that later inspired his father John Lennon, to pen the song 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds'.)

Once agreed upon, the producer, Todd Meagher, suggested that the song become more of a duet, which seemed more fitting under the circumstances.

Both Julian and James Scott Cook have records scheduled for release early next year.

James Scott Cook stated "I am honored to be a part of a song that might help people remember Lucy Vodden, bring some attention to Lupus and hopefully add a chapter to the unique story of inspiration that Lucy came to represent. Not to mention working with Julian Lennon was awesome."

Julian's new company 'theRevolution' is a partnership with Michael Birch, founder and former CEO of Bebo, that "is focusing on turning the MUSIC business into the MUSICIANS' business." The company assists artists in setting up their own music companies and then invests in those companies.
