The Shadow artists – each an iconic singer-songwriter on their own – have known each other for a long time, and were even once romantically involved. Her blue eyes were the inspiration behind the opening track to his band’s debut album in 1969. Now in their 70’s, the two have teamed up for their first recordings together, which will be included on a new album in September.
