NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Roy Orbison’s three sons are all musicians but never
really got to play music with their dad — until now.

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 boom box and added new instrumentation with
the help of another son of a music legend, co-producer John Carter Cash. The
album will be re-released May 20 with  “Mystery Girl” along with eight previously
unheard songs.
