Huntress Premiere New Song, “I Want to F**k You to Death,” Cowritten by Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead
Huntress will release their new album, Starbound Beast, on June 28 in Europe and on July 2 in North America via Napalm Records. Today the band has unveiled the first song from Starbound Beast. The track, entitled “I Want to Fuck You to Death,” was cowritten for singer Jill Janus by legendary Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister.
Huntress vocalist Jill Janus says of the collaboration, “I met Lemmy through my former band Chelsea Girls. We’d play hard-rock and metal covers featuring guest celebrities. Lemmy was already friends with the girls, so he played ‘Ace of Spades’ with us and it blew my mind. We stayed in touch and would meet up at The Rainbow for drinks. So I asked him a few months back over Jack & Cokes if he’d write lyrics for a Huntress song and he said ‘Sure.’ A few weeks later, I met him at the studio during Motörhead recording sessions. Lemmy handed me two two pieces of notebook paper with the lyrics for ‘I Want to Fuck You to Death.’ I am beyond honored. To me, this is a love song. It is the most romantic song I’ve ever heard.”
Lemmy also spoke of the collaboration: “The first time I heard Jill’s voice with Chelsea Girls, it was phenomenal. I wrote these lyrics from her point of view, the Huntress. ‘I Want to Fuck You to Death’ was inspired by her, written for her. I’ve always had a soft spot for her. And a hard spot, too…”
