Al Pereira/WireImagePat Benatar released a brand-new song titled "Shine" on Friday in support of the Women's March on Washington, which takes place in the U.S. capital on Saturday. The track, which was co-written with renowned songwriter and producer Linda Perry, is the Benatar's first new song in more than 10 years.

While she isn't able to attend the march, the legendary singer says she's releasing the song to coincide with the event because she wants to show her "support for everyone marching and the importance of standing up for women's rights." Pat adds, "By joining together and lifting each other up, we will show the world that women's rights must continue to move forward -- we're not going back."

Along with the release "Shine," a new campaign called Shine Together conceived by Benatar has been launched in support of the Women's March. According to a press statement, Shine Together "is a movement that uses the universal language of song to inspire women to support each other and continue to move forward on issues affecting women of all races, ethnicities and backgrounds."

"Shine" is available for purchase now as a digital download via ShineTogether.info and at iTunes, Amazon and other online music sellers. The track is priced at 69 cents to draw attention to the per-dollar wage gap that exists between men and women in the U.S. Proceeds from the tune will be donated to the B.A. Rudolph Foundation, which supports women who are seeking careers in public service and government.

You can check out an official video for "Shine" now on YouTube. The clip shows Benatar working on the track in the studio with Perry and Pat's husband and longtime guitarist Neil Giraldo.

PRNewsFoto/NAMMThe Band's Robbie Robertson was presented with the National Association of Music Merchants' "Music for Life" award on Thursday in Anaheim, California, at the 2017 edition of the popular NAMM Show trade event. The honor recognizes Robertson's many musical contributions, including his work as a songwriter, guitarist and film-score composer.

The 73-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer received the award at the association's "Breakfast of Champions" session, which opened the 2017 NAMM Show's first day. The event's theme was innovation, and Robertson discussed his own motivation to break new ground in his musical endeavors.

"You are influenced by people you admire…No matter how long you've been doing something, you're still absorbing, you're still learning," he maintained. "You learn one thing and then something else comes along and it challenges you and it raises you to a new place. The challenges that make you want to wake up early is one of the greatest gifts of life."

Robbie was presented with the "Music for Life" award by NAMM President and CEO Joe Lamond, who in introducing the influential roots rocker, said, "Robertson came of age during a time of great musical and social change which is still reverberating today. And with a seat at the table of some of the most memorable music moments of our lifetime, he has inspired countless to pick up an instrument and find their own voices."

Previous "Music for Life" award honorees include Graham Nash, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robertson, Yoko Ono and Henry Mancini.

Myrna SuarezIn the market for a Florida beachfront mansion previously inhabited by Billy Joel? Well, you're in luck...if you have millions of dollars to spare.

According to the New York Post, the Piano Man has dropped the price on his Manalapan, Florida, property by a million dollars, down to the low, low price of $18.5 million. The Mediterranean-style home has seven bedrooms and seven-and-a-half baths, and features its own private dock.

The estate was purchased by Joel in 2014 and reportedly served as a place for him to relax and write music. He apparently owns the vacant lot next door, too, which is also on the market for $9.5 million.

Billy has homes in Oyster Bay and Sag Harbor in his native Long Island, New York.

Courtesy of Shore Fire MediaOver the years, Mavis Staples has collaborated with such diverse artists as The Band, Prince and Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, and now the soul/gospel legend has lent her powerful vocals to a new song by the Canadian-American indie-rock group Arcade Fire. "I Give You Power," is a synth-heavy tune that's the first new track the band has released in four years.

You can listen to the song now via Tidal.

"It's never been more important that we stick together & take care of each other," say Staples and Arcade Fire of the track in a joint message posted on the group's Twitter feed. All proceeds from the song will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union.

Staples, who was among the artists recognized at the 2016 Kennedy Center Honors in December, has a number of U.S. concerts lined up this year, the next being a show on Friday night in Costa Mesa, California. Check out Mavis' full 2017 tour schedule at MavisStaples.com.

Credit: Fabrice DemessenceThe Who's Pete Townshend is planning to launch a reissue campaign this year that will see the release of repackaged versions of his entire solo catalog released. Music Week reports that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will work with Universal Music Group International CEO Max Hole on the initiative, as well as on a new edition of his Scoop compilation series.

Townshend says the project he's most excited about is the next installment of Scoop, which gathers together unreleased demos from Pete's archives.

"We might get that out in the last quarter of this year or the first quarter of next," he reports. "I've got so much stuff and it's always fun to wade through it. And it's also fun for me to have someone listen to everything I've got and make choices."

Townshend tells Music Week that he also is continuing to work on a multimedia project that involves a song cycle and an art installation. "I can't say much about it because I don't know what the time frame is going to be," he reveals.

As for whether The Who might finally work on a new studio album, Pete says that's "still in the air."

Townshend says many people are suggesting that the band try to make a record similar to The Rolling Stones' new blues covers collection, Blue & Lonesome, while he notes that he and singer Roger Daltrey also are interested in collaborating on an album of original songs.

"We are more optimistic than ever before, because Roger has grown such a lot," maintains Pete. "He's developed creatively, hugely."

As previously reported, The Who will give acoustic performances of their rock opera Tommy at London's Royal Albert Hall on March 31 and April 1 as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust benefit concert series.

Credit: Marc HauserJohn Mellencamp visited Yahoo!'s The Katie Couric Interview show on Thursday, one day before Donald Trump's inauguration, where he introduced a politically charged new song titled "Easy Target."

The 65-year-old singer/songwriter performed the melancholy folk-blues ballad accompanied by his touring band members Troye Kinnett and Andy York on piano and mandolin, respectively. The song is a reflection on the racial issues in the U.S., including the violent treatment many black people experience at the hands of police.

Prior to the performance, Mellencamp chatted with host Katie Couric to discuss what inspired the new song, Trump's inauguration and his opinions about the divisiveness in the country.

John also shared details about an upcoming album he's recording with Carlene Carter, daughter of June Carter and stepdaughter of Johnny Cash. The record, titled Sad Clowns and Hillbillies, is due out in the spring. Mellencamp revealed that he and Carter decided to collaborate on the project while touring together last year. He said that the album will feature duets as well as songs that each will sing solo.

Check out Mellencamp's performance of "Easy Target" at Yahoo.com. The studio version is available as digital download at iTunes and also available at select streaming services. In addition, you can check out a lyric video for the song at Mellencamp's official YouTube channel.

Steve Wright, middle, with Greg Kihn Band (Richard McCaffrey/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)Original Greg Kihn Band bassist Steve Wright, who co-wrote the group's biggest hits and dozens of other tunes, died Monday of a heart attack at a hospital in Sacramento, California.

Greg Kihn announced the sad news in a lengthy message on his official website. Calling Wright his "soul brother and songwriting partner," Kihn maintained that Steve "was the driving force behind the band and always kept it fresh and new."

Among the songs Wright co-wrote with Kihn were 1983's "Jeopardy," 1981's "The Breakup Song (They Don't Write 'Em)" and 1985's "Lucky," which peaked at #2, #15 and #30, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100. He played with the group from 1975 to 1996.

Recalling how "Jeopardy" was written, Kihn noted that he remembered it started with a riff that Wright played him on a Casio keyboard.

"What happened next was magic. I spontaneously started singing 'our love's in jeopardy, baby, whoo-who-hoo,'" Geg wrote. "That song wrote itself in about 15 minutes. It was as if the song was floating around in the air and we just snatched it up. Magic! Steve was always sensitive to the magic."

Kihn also described Wright as "a musician's musician," "a natural born songwriter and a creative spark through thick and thin," and "a monster bass player, the best I ever heard." In addition, Greg praised Steve's backing vocals, noting that his "voice complimented mine perfectly and his harmonies were incredible."

Kihn ended his tribute by saying, "Good-bye Steve, I'll miss you, my brother. It's been a hell of a ride. I'll see you in the next life.  Have fun jamming with all the greats in Heaven."

Alan SilfenLionel Richie is adding "movie producer" to his resume.  The singer will be helping to bring the life story of the legendary entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. to the screen.

Lionel was mentored by Davis, a singer, dancer, actor, comedian, musician and impressionist, who died in 1990.  In a statement, Lionel says, "It’s an honor for me to bring the life of one of my idols and friend to the screen. I’m so grateful to be working closely with the Davis family on this and couldn’t be happier to be moving forward on this passion project.”

Sammy Davis Jr. was a member of Frank Sinatra's "Rat Pack," and is also remembered for his 1972 hit "The Candy Man." He overcame racism and discrimination throughout his career, not just for being African-American, but for dating white actress Kim Novak, and subsequently marrying another white actress, May Britt.  Davis also made headlines when he converted to Judaism in 1961.

Another producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, said, "Sammy's life story is an unparalleled tale of what can be achieved with unbridled perseverance and talent. It is at its essence a uniquely American story of one man's ability to use his talents to reach the pinnacle of his profession."

The movie is moving forward following 27 years of disputes over the rights to the late entertainer's story.  All of his heirs are behind the project.  So far, there's no start date.

The 65-year-old singer/songwriter has posted the song's full lyrics at his official website. Here's the tune's first verse: "Here's an easy target/ With just one quiet pop/ Shot to hell anyway/ No reason to stop/ In the streets and the gutters/ The cotton fields of this land/ Here's an easy target/ With a trigger, in your hand."

BMGBesides being the sax player for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Jake Clemons is an accomplished singer/songwriter in his own right, and he's just released his first full-length album, Fear & Love. Clemons tells ABC Radio that he's extremely excited about the 11-track collection, which he reveals is a concept record inspired by personal upheaval.

"It's a storyline that encompasses the last several years of my processing life and processing what fears that you're born with and carry into relationships," he explains, "and having to reconcile those fears…and then finding a way to recover from those and experience the ability to love fearlessly."

More specifically, the 36-year-old musician points out, "I was in a bad relationship, and that came out through the music and I recognized where I was and found my way out of it."

Fear & Love is broken into two themed parts, with the "Fear" segment represented by such songs as "Hold Tight," "Burning," "Shadow" and the title track, and the "Love" section including the tunes "A Little Bit Sweet," "Just Stay," "Dream" and "Move On."

"Hold Tight" begins with a series of fake newscast reports warning of an impending hurricane, reflecting the turmoil Jake experienced in his soured relationship.

The album culminates with "Move On," which Clemons says is about "recognizing that there's joy, there's love and there's honesty, and that's where we should live."

Fear & Love was recorded at studios in the Toronto area, Virginia, Nashville and New York City, with the latter being a facility owned by E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt.

"He was so generous and kind enough to offer his amazing, wickedly cool studio," gushes Jake. "It's just a great space to track in, and I feel like really helped to convey some of the songs."

Roger Ressmeyer/Corbis/VCG via Getty ImagesIf you can't make it to the 2017 Sundance Film Festival next week to catch the world premiere of the new Grateful Dead documentary Long Strange Trip, you'll be able to watch the four-hour film on Amazon Prime Video come May. Amazon has acquired the rights to the Martin Scorsese-produced project, which will debut on its streaming service on May 26 as a six-part series.

Long Strange Trip is fully sanctioned by The Grateful Dead and was directed by Amir Bar-Lev, whose credits include the critically acclaimed doc The Tillman Story. The film features new interviews with the band's surviving members, as well as family members, road crew and fans. It also includes previously unseen concert and behind-the-scenes footage and photos of the group. Long Strange Trip not delves into the band's inventive music and improvisational performances, while also looking at the group's impact on the counterculture and its huge community of devoted followers, the "Deadheads."

Founding Dead singer guitarist Bob Weir says of the film, "Over several decades a group of guys hung together making music in a group that was way tighter and lasted much longer than most marriages. Here's the movie…"

Scorsese, meanwhile, says, "I've always admired the spirit and creativity of the Grateful Dead. They are revolutionary artists who forever changed the world of touring and recording live music. They were a cultural force -- a lifestyle, that continue to influence new generations of fans."

Long Strange Trip will get its world premiere this Monday, January 23, at 8:30 p.m. PT at the Yarrow Hotel Theatre in Park City, Utah. Among the stars expected to attend the event are Weir, Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, and Trixie Garcia, daughter of late Dead frontman Jerry Garcia.

Mary McCartney/MPL CommunicationsPaul McCartney is gunning to get back the copyrights to a bunch of Beatles songs he wrote or co-wrote that currently are owned by the Sony/ATV publishing company. According to the rock legend's rep, McCartney filed a lawsuit in New York on Wednesday "to confirm his ownership in his U.S. reversionary copyrights, which are granted to him by U.S. copyright law, in the songs he wrote with John Lennon and recorded with The Beatles."

Under copyright law, creators who sold copyrights before 1976 have a right to reclaim them at a certain point. 

The lawsuit claims that McCartney has been serving notices of his intention to reclaim them to the current owners of the copyrights since 2008, and is expecting to have these copyrights returned to him beginning in October 5, 2018.

The suit -- which asks the court to affirm that these notices are valid and proper under the law -- seems to be an attempt to protect the former Beatle from a legal strategy the publishing company used in U.K. courts in December to hold off an attempt by Duran Duran to reclaim its publishing.

In response to the lawsuit, Sony/ATV has issued a statement maintaining that it "has the highest respect for Sir Paul McCartney with whom we have enjoyed a long and mutually rewarding relationship with respect to the treasured Lennon & McCartney song catalog," while adding, "We are disappointed that they have filed this lawsuit which we believe is both unnecessary and premature."

Last year, Sony/ATV, which was established as a joint venture between Sony and Michael Jackson in 1995, bought late the King of Pop's share of the company for $750 million.

Clay Patrick McBride; James GladerToday marks the one-year anniversary of Glenn Frey's death, and in honor of the Eagles singer, Bob Seger has debuted a new song tribute to his late friend that can be downloaded for free at Seger's official Facebook page and also is streaming at RollingStone.com.

"Glenn Song" is a sparse, melancholy tune that finds Seger musing about Frey's passing and reminiscing about his passion for music.

"You were young, you were bold/ And you loved your rock and soul," sings Bob. "You were strong, you were sharp/But you had the deepest heart/ You showed the whole world what we knew/There was no one quite like you."

Seger recorded the track about four months ago in Nashville with some session musicians while working on an upcoming studio album.

"It's obviously not meant to be a hit," he tells Rolling Stone. "There's no chorus per se or title section or anything. The idea was just to honor his memory and talk, very specifically, about my impression of him in 1966 when we first met."

Seger and Frey met while they both were playing in bands in the Detroit area. Bob enlisted Glenn to sing backing vocals on his 1968 hit "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man," but it was Frey who would find superstardom first as a member of the Eagles.

Seger remained friends with Frey and would go on to co-write the Eagles' 1979 chart-topping hit "Heartache Tonight" with Glenn, Don Henley and J.D. Souther. Bob ended up singing the song at Glenn's memorial service, and also performed it during the Eagles' 2016 Kennedy Center Honors tribute.

With regard to his new tune, Seger tells Rolling Stone, "I hope 'Glenn Song' doesn't make his wife Cindy cry. But it probably will."

Frey was 67 when he passed away on January 18, 2016.

Allen Ross Thomas; Barry Brecheisen/ WireImageWith the 2017 installment of the Experience Hendrix Tour set to kick off on February 17 in Portland, Oregon, some new additions to the trek's star-studded lineup have been announced. Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford and Los Lobos singer/guitarists David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas will appear on select dates of the Jimi Hendrix tribute tour, which is mapped out through a March 26 show in Prior Lake, Minnesota.

Whitford, who has participated in a quite a few previous Experience Hendrix tours, will join this year's trek on March 10, 11 and 12. A Hendrix fan since he was a teenager, Brad notes, "He had a really deep understanding and knowledge of blues. I don't know where it came from. We all try and cop that feel. We can't quite nail it, but it sure is fun to try and emulate some of what he did."

Hidalgo and Rosas, who also have been regular participants in past treks, will be on hand for the March 9, 10 and 11 dates. Rosas recalls listening to Hendrix's music as a kid growing up in East L.A.

"It was so different from everything else," he says. "It was exciting, great music."

As has become tradition, this year's Experience Hendrix Tour will be anchored by ex-Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band of Gypsys bassist Billy Cox. The 2017 lineup also features blues legend Buddy Guy, Black Label Society frontman and ex-Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde, Double Trouble drummer Chris Layton, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Dweezil Zappa, among others.
