-John Lennon and Paul McCartney


New York, NY (June 25, 2024) – In a career lasting sixty years, Gerry Goffin wrote lyrics to over 114 Billboard Hot 100 hits, eight of which went to #1. The story of Gerry’s life, like his prolific songs, not only reflects the times of his era but continues to have relevance and resonance today. The upcoming feature documentary Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? provides a rare glimpse inside the artist as well as the man behind the words. Produced by Primary Wave Music, Be Forward Productions, and Storyvault Films (“Teddy Pendergrass: If You Don’t Know Me”, “Gary Numan Resurrection”), the film explores Goffin’s roots as a songwriter, his marriage and family life with Carole King, his professional highs and lows and his ongoing battle with severe mental health issues. Despite Gerry’s personal challenges his dedication to the art of songwriting and his commitment to social activism remained constant.

Gerry Goffin’s extraordinary life and unique talent offer an opportunity to go behind the scenes of a troubled artist whose struggles both served and sabotaged his creative process as he skyrocketed to the top of American popular music.  As a product of his own personal challenges, Gerry had the unique ability to create simple turns of phrase packed with profound sentiment and lasting universal resonance. Throughout his career, Goffin wrote for dozens of celebrated artists including Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Rod Stewart, Natalie Cole, James Taylor, Ray Charles, Whitney Houston, Kylie Minogue, Amy Winehouse, and of course, Carole King. In addition to Goffin’s contribution to the success of numerous recording artists, his work continues to influence generations of lyricists.

In “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?”, Goffin’s story, one that has not yet been given the attention it deserves, will be told for the first time through the eyes of close friends and family including writing partner and former wife Carole King, daughters Louise and Sherry Goffin Kondor, his widow Michele Conaway Goffin, longtime manager Christine Russell, and notable collaborators and artists from his prolific career.  The 90-minute feature will be directed by Southan Morris, with Christine Russell, Sherry Kondor, Mara Burros Sandler, Sam Richards, Stuart Prebble, Larry Mestel, Robert Kraft and Natalia Nastaskin as Executive Producers. The production will have unprecedented access to Goffin’s music catalog and archive, including never-before seen or heard music and footage from one of the most masterful songwriters of our time.

Sherry Goffin Kondor said of the documentary, “So much has been made of my mom’s life story, but I find my father’s history equally fascinating. In spite of all the darkness that tormented him, he also had this beautiful inner light. I want people to see both.”

Christine Russell added, “I had the great fortune to work with Gerry for over 20 years. Riding the wave of his mental illness was often erratic, but one thing that remained constant was his passion for songwriting and his love of the music business. His life story is poignant and impactful and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to share it with this documentary.”

“It is truly an honor to be part of this filmmaking team which will take a deep dive into the life and times of a songwriter whose music is the soundtrack of the lives and loves of millions of people around the world,” said Natalia Nastaskin, Chief Content Officer at Primary Wave Music. She continued, “Gerry Goffin’s hits ‘The Loco-Motion’, ‘Up On The Roof’ and ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman’ and countless others will prominently feature as the story of Gerry’s own life and loves unfolds.”

“So many of us have danced, or tapped our feet, or sang along to Gerry Goffin’s brilliant lyrics over so many decades – and yet we know next to nothing about him,” said Stuart Prebble of Storyvault Films. He went on, “The chance to discover and tell his story, and give him some of the credit he deserves, feels like a privilege for all of us”.
