From Lydia Night on her collaboration with Billie Joe Armstrong and Morrissey - Kerrang! (February 28, 2019):
We caught up with Lydia backstage in Brum before their set to find out how her collaboration with Moz and Billie Joe on the track Wedding Bell Blues – originally by The Fifth Dimension – came about…
“I had no idea Billie Joe was on the song, which is really funny! I was hit up by my manager, and I guess someone on Morrissey’s team suggested me to be one of the vocalists on it, and I was like, ‘Yeah, of course!’ I’ve grown up loving The Smiths – my cat’s name is Morrissey! So I went in and sang background vocals on the song, and then left. And then I found out on the day it was announced that Billie Joe was on it too, which is crazy. I haven’t heard it yet, so I have no idea what it’s going to be like (laughs), but it’s a great song!
Guitarist and vocalist from New Orleans, Louisiana.
