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 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.

"Mystery Girl" will be re-released May 20 with "The Way is Love," one of nine previously unheard songs.
