The band Bonnie Dune released their new EP called, “Miramar” today! The EP includes six new songs that were all recorded with fellow band member, Cory Monteith, about a month before he passed away in July.
Lead singer, Justin Wilczynski, admitted the band stopped recording around May 2013 when Cory Monteith left Los Angeles to go to Vancouver because he was in a dark place at the time. “We finished these six particular songs quite a while ago,” said Wilczynski. “Some things happened where Cory needed to take a break and we realized that he was struggling and that he was having a hard time, so we took a bit of a hiatus from the writing and recording process,” he said.
One of those songs includes, “Maybe Tonight,” one of Cory‘s last songs he recorded before dying. Monteith never got to listen to all the completed songs, except for three, one of them being “Maybe Tonight.” Wilczynski took him the songs to listen to and he was so happy, “This is amazing, I cannot believe how great it turned out.” He even shared the recordings with girlfriend Lea Michelle.
This isn’t a farewell album for Cory Monteith. Justin Wilczynski said it’s more of a “celebration of his life and what he enjoyed doing.” Beautiful. He also added, “He definitely meant a lot to us and it was something that Cory really had a great time doing, we all did.”
