“I've always wanted to sing duets with Willy, fighting has never been more fun!” says singer, Amy Boone.
The Lost Duets are the Delines on a desert vacation: mariachi influenced horns, pedal steel, and accordion are the back drop for the first ever Delines duets between lead singer, Amy Boone, and songwriter and guitarist Willy Vlautin. Welcome to the world of romance Delines style.
“We both love singing duets,” says guitarist and songwriter, Willy Vlautin. “I’ve written a few but so far they haven’t fit on any of our records. The wrong place at the wrong time sorta thing. "The Golden State" leans on our cowpunk roots but I brought it to the band when we had already drifted away from that sound. "My Blood Bleeds The Darkest Blue" has a real Lee Hazelwood/Morricone orchestrated desert feel to it but at the time we were working on The Sea Drift, songs set along the Gulf Coast, so that one didn’t fit either. But once we had The Sea Drift done we recorded the duets as a present to ourselves. Both are songs we really love but songs left orphaned along the way and we thought we better give them a proper home.”
