Sons of Roy Orbison create new song with late father for 'Mystery Girl' reissue

Roy Orbison's three sons are all musicians but never really got to play music with their dad -- until now, The Associated Press reports. Wesley, Roy Jr. and Alex Orbison have helped create a new song by their father that will appear on the 25th anniversary reissue and expansion of Orbison's final album, "Mystery Girl." They found an old vocal track for a song called "The Way is Love" originally recorded on a boombox and were able to reclaim it using technology that had to be created to accomplish the work. They then added new instrumentation with the help of another son of a music legend, co-producer John Carter Cash.
