I decided to create a project that would reflect all the different ways I make music with other people — and I wanted to make it simple, quick, and foolproof. So, I put out a call to all my musical friends asking to record duets with me. Any style, any length, any instruments, voices, anything at all. Whatever we're feeling.

The rules were this: We do each duet in the course of one day only — what's recorded by the end of the day is what it is. I'd give the recording part of the project one month. Then I'd mix and master whatever was there and put it out to the world.

This is what came out of that month — since there are only two tracks, I'm putting it out as a single anyways, because they deserve to be heard. Name your price. Thanks for any money you throw our way (it gets split between me and my collaborators).

I'll be doing this again…there will be more music. We'll keep making more music. We'll keep making more music.

with love,
Jay

[Jay]
I like the way that her hair goes dancing,
The way it spins when she walks

[Mackenzie]
He's sweet and glances at the floor
Then looks at me, how do I know?

[Jay]
I can't explain, but she sends me reeling,
She looks away when she talks

[Mackenzie]
He's turning my heart in my head
But do I show him that at all?

Say the word,
Hold your breath,
And the rest will follow
There's a way
That you'll know
When you're standing there
When you're lost
And you're free
And your arms are empty
Tell me there's something there

[Jay]
I count the days till I see you smiling
And hear your voice on the phone

[Mackenzie]
I look for you in everything
And think of you when I'm alone

Sometimes I'm running away
(sometimes I'm running away)
I'm gonna need you to stay
(I'm gonna need you to stay)

Say the word,
Hold your breath,
And the rest will follow
There's a way
That you'll know
When you're standing there
When you're lost
And you're free
And your arms are empty
Tell me there's something

Say the word,
Hold your breath,
And the rest will follow
There's a way
That you'll know
When you're standing there
When you're lost
And you're free
And your arms are empty
Tell me there's something there

For many years, I was lost, now I'm found
For many years, I'll be buried in this ground…
