The final song to be written by the late Robin Gibb, recorded in a bedroom using an iPad, is to be released on an album of previously unheard recordings by the Bee Gees star.

The track, called Sydney, prompted tears from Gibb and his Tyrone-born wife Dwina when he wrote it as he nostalgically looked back at his early life in Australia with his hit-making brothers.

The album, called 50 St Cathereine’s Drive was recorded in August 2011, just nine months before his death. It is due out on September 29.
