Robin Gibb's final solo album to be released
Robin Gibb's final solo album '50 St. Catherine's Drive' will be released in September
Robin Gibb's final solo album will be released in September.
'50 St. Catherine's Drive' has been completed by Robin's wife Dwina and son RJ following the singer's death in May 2012 and it includes most of the tracks originally recorded for the record, along with the last songs written and recorded by Robin.
The final track on the album, 'Sydney' is also the very last song recorded by Robin and his wife explained how he had wanted to work on it with his brother, Bee Gees bandmate Barry.
She said: "Robin composed this late at night, in August 2011, at our home, The Prebendal. He used the bedroom keyboards and then Garageband on an I-Pad. He wished to finish this song in a studio with Barry, for a new album he hoped they would record together, but his health prevented this.
"He missed his twin brother Maurice who had passed away; but when he closed his eyes, the three young brothers were back in Sydney, Australia, happy together with their dreams and hopes for the future.
"Their future creations of course affected the world. This fragment of song is poignant, wistful, beautiful and unfinished. It belongs on this album as one of his last works. He cried when he wrote it, and I wept when I heard it."
'50 St. Catherine's Drive' is the address of the house where Robin was born in Douglas on the Isle of Man.
