According to a news story posted at broadwayworld.com, Alex Lifeson has collaborated with the Canadian-born duo DVBBS (pronounced 'dubs') to record a new version of Rush's 'Closer to the Heart', which will be made available for download in early 2017.
From the story:"When we first had dinner with Ray Daniels, Rush manager, we couldn't be any more excited hearing the stories Chris said. I grew up a drummer so Neil Pert [sic] was a legend to me and a strong influence my whole childhood and music career."For more information on the collaboration, please click HERE.
"They're the greatest Canadian band of all time so when we were given the chance to remake a song and implement new music and production with Alex Lifeson, you can imagine how excited we were. Can't wait to play people the song, and bridge the gap between generations says Alex. The song will be available for download in early 2017.
