KMazur/WireImageDuring their tour this year, Depeche Mode has included a cover of David Bowie's "Heroes" in honor of the late music icon. The synth-pop icons have now released an official recording of the cover to mark the 40th anniversary of the original track's release. You can listen to the cover now via YouTube.

"'Heroes' is the most special song to me at the moment," says frontman Dave Gahan in a statement. "Bowie is the one artist who I've stuck with since I was in my early teens. His albums are always my go-to on tour and covering 'Heroes' is paying homage to Bowie."

Depeche Mode has been touring in support of their new album, Spirit. The outing continues Friday night in Dallas, Texas.

Identity Records/The Fuel MusicJonathan Cain is stepping out with a Christmas album.

The longtime Journey keyboardist, co-writer of such hits as “Don’t Stop Believin’” and “Who’s Crying Now,” will release Unsung Noel on October 13. The disc features 10 new songs written by Cain, as well as several holiday classics.

Cain plays piano, keyboards and sings lead vocals on the project, also arranged and produced the album at his state-of-the art Addiction Sound Studios in Nashville.

He explains, “The music came to me over the course of two recent Journey tours, and I recorded the entire album during a 10-day break this spring. I wrote and arranged most of this album on the road in hotel rooms as we traveled from city to city.”

Cain adds, "This album is dedicated to the coming of Christ and the events in scripture that is the core of our Christian belief.”

Cain, who previously issued an album of Christian music titled What God Wants to Hear, says he’d been contemplating a Christmas album for years. He's posted a preview trailer for Unsung Noel on his Facebook page, and promises tour dates soon. 

Cain is also planning to publish a still-untitled memoir next spring that'll detail his personal journey of faith, as well as his 36-year career with Journey.

 Here’s the track list for Jonathan Cain’s Unsung Noel:

“This Is the Heart of Christmas”
“Star of Bethlehem”
“Emmanuel”
“Angels We Have Heard on High”
“Joseph’s Pride”
“It’s Only Christmas When”
“Unsung Noel”
“You Shall Call His Name”
"Hail Mary”
“Oh Holy Night”
“You Came to Reign”
“Light of the World”
“The Night Love Came Down”
“Do You Hear What I Hear”

Stuart M BergDaryl Hall & John Oates are doing their part for hurricane relief.

Tonight in Cedar Park, Texas, the duo will start a run of shows in the American South.  Since some of those cities in this particular run of dates were devastated by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the duo will be donating a portion of ticket sales to the Red Cross.

"I know everyone has been experiencing hard times, bad luck and a lot of sadness.  We'll try and do our share to help and also give some soulful cheer at the shows," says Daryl Hall in a statement.

John Oates adds, "Hopefully our music will bring a small respite from the damages suffered during the hurricane, and more importantly, I'm hopeful that our contribution to the American Red Cross can help those in need."

The cities Daryl and John will visit in addition to Cedar Park include Sugar Land, TX, Tuscaloosa, AL, Jacksonville, FL and Charleston, SC.  Next month, the duo will play shows in London and Dublin.

Paul Kane/Getty ImagesThey didn’t literally rock and roll all night, but it was still pretty special for KISS fans.

Billboard reports founding KISS members Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley performed together for the first time in 16 years Thursday night during a Hurricane Harvey benefit show at CHS Field in St. Paul, MN. They played four songs together: “Parasite,” “Cold Gin,” “Shock Me,” and “Rock and Roll All Nite,” inviting some audience members on stage for the latter tune.

Simmons and Frehley hadn’t shared a stage since the finale of KISS’ so-called Farewell Tour in Australia in April 2001. Even when the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, Frehley didn’t perform with them.

As to how the reunion came about, Frehley told the Minneapolis StarTribune, “I just did four shows on the East Coast, and I looked at my calendar and I noticed I was off [Thursday]. I had to head back to San Diego eventually where I live, so I figured I could make a pit stop here. I called Gene, and he was really excited about me being involved, and it’s that simple.”

Frehley also said Gene paid a visit to his house recently, during which they wrote two songs together for an upcoming Simmons solo album.

John Russo © 2017 Twentieth Century Fox FIlm Corp.Director Matthew Vaughn wanted to put Elton John in his movie 2014 Kingsman: The Secret Service but couldn't find a way to work him into the plot.  But Vaughn did get Elton into the new sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle -- and one of Elton's Oscar-winning co-stars gives his performance a big thumbs up.

In Golden Circle, in theaters today, Jeff Bridges plays Champagne, a member of the U.S. spy agency Statesman, the counterpart to the U.K.'s Kingsman spy agency.  Elton plays himself, and Bridges tells ABC Radio of his part, "It's terrific, and it's not just a little cameo! I mean, this is a genuine role... he really, y'know, comes to the party all guns blazing.  He's wonderful in the film." 

In the film -- SPOILER ALERT -- Elton John has been kidnapped by the movie's villain, Poppy, played by Julianne Moore, and forced to perform private concerts for her every night.  Of course, he's not happy about it, and is shown throwing several foul-mouthed temper tantrums.  Eventually, he helps the good guys defeat Poppy, in a scene that makes use of one of his classic hits.

According to one review of the film, in one scene, one of the heroes asks Elton if he can get tickets to one of his shows. To which Elton replies, in typical fashion, "Darling, if you save the world, you can have a backstage pass!"

In addition to Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Elton John, Kingsman: The Golden Circle also stars Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Mark Strong, Colin Firth, and Taron Egerton.

ABC RecordsSteely Dan's classic album Aja was released 40 years ago Saturday.  Before he was a solo star, or even a Doobie Brother, Michael McDonald was one of the musicians who worked with Steely Dan on tour and in the studio.  He sang on many of their albums, including Aja, notably on the hit single, "Peg."  Michael recalls the day he recorded that song, he felt very insecure about his vocal abilities.

"My anxieties of working with those guys was that I wasn't going to be able to cut it," he tells ABC Radio. "I mean, I sing, but I'm not one of those studio kind of singers that has a three-octave range, and all kinds of breath control. I smoked too much and I drank too much."

That's why, he recalls, "I remember being terrified by that whole session." 

Michael was the only one doing all the harmonies on "Peg," but they were so difficult that he found he couldn't stay in tune. "If I heard the other part, it was just too close to what I was singing," he admits. "So I sang all the parts completely solo and then they brought 'em all back [together]...and they sounded great."

It's no wonder that Michael was nervous working with Steely Dan, though. The duo's Donald Fagen and the late Walter Becker were notorious perfectionists.

"I always enjoyed working for Donald and Walter, [but] they could be harsh taskmasters," Michael remembers. "A lot of it was just their sense of humor...their songs are always a kind of a study in irony and sarcasm, and I always thought that was the best part of their music."

Michael is currently on the road in support of Wide Open, his first new album of original material in more than 15 years.

Val Wilmer/RedfernsAn unreleased, early demo version of the Beatles' classic "What Goes On" could be yours if the price is right.

Online record dealer Parlogram is auctioning off an acetate demo of the song from early 1963.  The band would revive the song two years later for the Rubber Soul album in 1965.

The demo features John Lennon singing and accompanying himself on acoustic guitar with Paul McCartney singing harmony on the chorus.  It also features original lyrics on the verses that differ from those on the later version. Ringo Starr would take the lead on the Rubber Soul version.

The song itself actually predates The Beatles.  Lennon told interviewer David Sheff in 1980, "That as an early Lennon written before the Beatles when we were the Quarrymen, or something like that.  And resurrected with a middle eight thrown in, probably with Paul's help, to give Ringo a song and also to use the bits because I never liked to waste anything."

According to Parlogram, George Harrison gave the nearly-two-minute acetate to a family member. It original was sold at auction in 2012 as part of a lot of several items.

The acetate is being auctioned on eBay, and Parlogram has uploaded a snippet of the demo to YouTube. Bidding ends October 1.  As of Thursday night, bidding stood at 2,222 pounds or around $3,016.

Credit: Loud & Proud RecordsNancy Wilson’s rock and roll heart is still beating, but with a soulful twist.

Wilson, founding member and guitarist for Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famers Heart, has teamed up with R&B singer Liv Warfield, a former member of Prince’s New Power Generation, to form Roadcase Royale. The band’s debut album, the aptly-named First Things First, comes out today.

Roadcase Royale also features lead guitarist and Prince protégé Ryan Waters and three other Heart members: keyboardist Chris Joyner, drummer Ben Smith, and bassist Dan Rothchild, the latter of whom produced the album.

Wilson tells ABC Radio the members all have a “similar ethic on how want to sound and how to make it work” and it came together quickly, “sort of like we just got married in Vegas.”

As for the name Roadcase Royale, it comes from life on the road. Wilson says, “It was an interesting symbol to me since the big heavy-duty road cases that our amps drums and guitars travel in are much like the musicians they accompany…Strong and regal looking yet all scuffed up and dented, covered in funny stickers that tell the story of a crazy traveling circus.”

Their first single is “Get Loud.” Another track, “The Dragon,” was written for late Alice In Chains frontman and fellow Seattle musician Layne Staley before his death.

As for when Wilson will reunite with her sister, Heart co-founder Ann Wilson, that’s still unknown.  A rift between the two prompted an indefinite hiatus.  Nancy tells ABC News she’s waiting for when “me and my sister can actually have a discussion,” adding, “I've kind of reached out, but she hasn't been ready to reach out.” 

Wilson and company have lined up some headlining dates and will be special guests on the Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band’s Silver Bullet Tour.

Here are Roadcase Royale’s headlining dates:

9/24 -- Milwaukee, WI, The Pabst Theater
9/26 -- State College, PA, The State Theatre
10/1 -- Charlotte, NC, Neighborhood Theatre
10/4 -- Knoxville, TN, Bijou Theatre 
10/8 -- Nashville, TN, City Winery
10/15 -- Oklahoma City, OK, Tower Theatre
10/17 -- New Orleans, LA, Joy Theater

Susan Wood/Getty ImagesA lemonade company’s attempt to capitalize on the late John Lennon has left a sour taste with Yoko Ono.

According to The Guardian, Ono has legally blocked a Polish company from selling a lemonade brand called “John Lemon.”

Specifically, the legal action referenced a Facebook post by John Lemon Ireland, showing a wall mural of Lennon holdings lemons with the band logo underneath. Other John Lemon advertising showed a pair of round glasses similar to those famously worn by the ex-Beatle, next to the words “Let It Be.” 

Ono’s lawyer said, “They were abusing and misusing the legacy of John Lennon to sell their soda.” 

The company, established five years ago to distribute to bars and restaurants in the United Kingdom and 13 other European countries, agreed to sell its stocks of John Lemon drinks by the end of October. It also agreed to change its name to On Lemon.

A lawyer for the firm representing John Lemon said the company registered its trademark in 2014, two years before the John Lennon brand was registered, but decided a settlement was better than risking having the product banned.

Karol Chamera, founder of John Lemon's U.K. distributor, told the East London Advertiser, “All of us involved with this product are startups and we couldn’t take on someone who is worth many, many millions.”

Legacy RecordingsThere’s a new addition to the upcoming Roy Orbison release, and it’s a beauty.

“Pretty Paper,” the Willie Nelson-composed holiday tune that Orbison first recorded in 1963, has been added to the track list for A Love So Beautiful: Roy Orbison with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Due November 3, the album pairs Orbison’s original vocal tracks with newly-recording backing from the famed London orchestra, laid down at Abbey Road Studios.

Regarding the song, Nelson recalls Orbison originally recorded it in London, adding, “It’s kind of amazing that the same song by the same great artist, recorded again in London 54 years later, is now having a second life."

A Love So Beautiful also includes Orbison classics like “Oh, Pretty Woman,” “Crying,” and “Only the Lonely.” Selected tracks also feature backing from Roy’s sons Wesley and Roy Jr. on guitar and Alex on drums, along with some help from 10-month-old grandson, Roy III.

A Love So Beautiful: Roy Orbison with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was produced by Don Reedman and Nick Patrick, the duo behind A Brand New Me: Aretha Franklin with Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, due November 10, and the previous hits If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and The Wonder of You: Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

In 1976, Elton John told Rolling Stone he was bisexual.  Then, when he got married in 1984, it was to a woman: a German recording engineer named Renate Blauel.  They split after four years, and Elton then declared that he was "comfortable" identifying not as bisexual, but as gay. 

In a new Instagram post, Elton uses that experience to reflect on the issue of marriage equality, which is coming up for a vote in Australia very soon.

"I'm so excited to be back in Australia for a series of shows," Elton writes in the caption of a photo of his wedding to his current spouse, David Furnish.  "Many years ago, I chose Australia for my wedding to a wonderful woman for whom I have so much love and admiration."

"I wanted more than anything to be a good husband, but I denied who I really was, which caused my wife sadness, and caused me huge guilt and regret," he explains. "To be worthy of someone's love, you have to be brave enough and clear eyed enough to be honest with yourself and your partner."

Elton then reflects on his nearly 24-year relationship with Furnish, whom he married in 2014. 

"It felt like that fact was accepted by the world," he writes. "For David and I, being able to openly love and commit to one another, and for that to be recognized and celebrated, is what makes life truly worth living."

Elton finishes by saying, "I love Australia. I love its spirit, its lack of pretense, its passion. I hope it can embrace the honesty and courage that seeks gay marriage as an expression not of desire but of love."

He ended his post with the hashtags #loveislove and #marriageequality.

Amy Sussman/Getty ImagesPete Townshend is a married man again. In fact, he has been since last December, but now it’s official.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, the 72-year-old the Who co-founder revealed he and his longtime partner, fellow musician Rachel Fuller, 44, were wed in a small private ceremony last December. Townshend called the marriage a “very, very happy thing” for the couple, who’ve been together over 20 years.

As for keeping it quiet until now, Pete said, “Really, we were being selfish. I have been away on tour so much in recent years, we just wanted to be together, and savor the moment.” Oddly, as Fuller has been on tour with the Who, which Townshend called “a kind of wedding blessing for us both,” Pete has referred to her as his wife onstage and “the response has been great.”

Townshend married his previous wife, Karen Astley, in 1968; they have three grown children. They separated in 1994 and divorced in 2009.

In a separate post, Townshend said he plans to take a yearlong sabbatical, providing the official definition as “a period of paid leave granted to a university teacher for study or travel, traditionally one year for every seven years worked,” adding that he doubted he’d make his normal Who salary during that time.

Capitol/UMeThis year marks the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Fever, one of the most influential and impactful movies of the '70s -- and its best-selling soundtrack was equally iconic.  So get out your white three-piece suit and put on your dancing shoes, because in November, that soundtrack -- which has sold an estimated 40 million copies worldwide -- is getting the super deluxe box set treatment.

The set features two CDs containing the remastered original album and four remixes, as well as a 180-gram two-LP vinyl version of the remastered album.  There's also a Blu-ray of the film's 4K-restored 40th Anniversary Director's Cut and Theatrical Version, along with a number of bonus features.

But that's not all: the set also includes a 23-page book featuring newly-penned essays by the Bee Gees' Barry Gibb, director John Badham and others.  On top of that, you'll get Bee Gees photos, film stills, a reproduction of the original Saturday Night Fever poster, a set of five art prints, and even a turntable slipmat to spin the vinyl on.

"Forty years ago, Saturday Night Fever was released and the impact that came from it, even today, is inexplicable," writes Barry Gibb in his essay. "It was inexplicable even then."

The box set arrives November 17, just two days after the actual 40th anniversary of the album's original release.  The Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, which won the Grammy for Album of the Year, spawned five massive singles -- including "Stayin' Alive," "How Deep Is Your Love" and "Night Fever" -- and topped the chart for 24 straight weeks. 

The soundtrack was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2004, and in 2013, it was added to the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry as a culturally significant work.

James PowellChuck Panozzo has a special message to share on this, his 68th birthday.  The founding Styx bassist has issued a statement in which he talks about being both gay, and an HIV survivor.

Panozzo, who revealed his diagnosis back in 2001, says, “It’s difficult enough to be different and even more challenging to live with big secrets. I have finally learned to enjoy my differences. Through the years, I struggled with my feelings about my diagnosis and found that the stigma of being HIV positive was actually worse than having the disease itself.”

He also talks about a recent visit to the World AIDS Museum and Educational Center in Wilton Manors, Florida, which he says was a life-changing experience.

Panozzo says, “I confronted my fear and found a tremendous freedom in doing so. Along with this came a learning experience and I became more aware of who I am and what I can do to change my feelings. I was so moved by the Museum’s mission that I have been able to experience a much greater personal power.”

Panozzo has posted a video about his visit to the Museum and is asking friends and fans to “like” WAM’s Facebook page, visit  their website and make a donation.

He concludes, “Thank you for allowing me to share my personal story and taking the time to learn about the importance of The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center. I promise that your donation will make a difference in many lives.”

Django CrosbyDavid Crosby didn’t have to look far for assistance on his new album, Sky Trails.

The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee tells USA Today he collaborated with his son, James Raymond, on a complex track titled “Curved Air.” The song features a flamenco guitar intro that Raymond actually composed on keyboards.

Crosby marvels, “I don’t know how he did it. I am completely flummoxed by it. When I heard it I said, ‘Who did you get to play the guitar?’ And he said, ‘Me.’ I said, ‘Oh, come on. You can’t possibly have played that. It’s inconceivable.’ But, yeah, he did. He’s that good.”

The 76-year-old Crosby says at this point in his storied career, he’s not interested in looking for a “hit.”

“[Raymond] and I aren’t trying to be pop guys, man," he explains. "We’re not trying to have a hit. It’s just that I am at the end of my life. I’ve got a little time left. So I feel a strong pressure to do every bit of music I can and do it as well as I possibly can, knowing it will last longer than I will."

You can listen to "Curved Air" now on SoundCloud.  Sky Trails is due September 29.
