First Listen: Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. reimagine classic Beatles ballad

(May 4, 2021) They are legends two times over, and a model for longevity in an industry where that comes at a premium. And we are extremely happy to welcome back the great Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis , to SoulTracks.

Both as members of the 5th Dimension and as a duo, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis have created a lot of great music over their five plus decades in the public eye, and have also served as a model of togetherness since their marriage in 1969. We last heard new music from them over a decade ago with the album The Many Faces of Love, and now they are readying an upcoming an upcoming album paying tribute to the songs of the Beatles.

The newest advance single from the album is a sweet take on the classic Beatles ballad, “And I Love Her.” Beginning with a simple piano opening, the song builds into a gentle, full orchestral backing behind the duo, who sound both beautiful and earnest together.

This may be the best advance song we’ve heard yet from the album, and it makes us want to hear more. Check it out below.
