Glen Campbell has gone back into the studio, reportedly for the last time, to record a new song for the soundtrack of the EP soundtrack for the documentary Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.
Campbell revealed he was battling Alzheimer's disease in 2011 and has since released two albums and toured for a final time. His disease has progressed to the point where he is now in a care facility.
The new song, I'm Not Gonna Miss You, was written by Campbell and Julian Raymond and recorded at Sunset Sound Factory and East West Recording Studio in Los Angeles.
The song and the soundtrack will both be released on September 30. The EP will also include a cover by the Band Perry, a song by Campbell's daughter, Ashley, and two live recordings by Glen.
