Country legend Glen Campbell has released a final song and music video that looks at his Alzheimer’s diagnosis. It was recorded in 2013 with producer Julian Raymond.
The song begins "I'm still here but yet I'm gone/ I don't play guitar or sing my songs”
The accompanying video merges footage of Campbell recording the song with home video and scenes of his doctors going through brain scans with him.
Campbell, 78, had a string of hits in the 1960s and 1970s. Following his diagnosis in 2011, he went on a final Goodbye Tour in 2012.
Even if you've never been a fan of Glen Campbell, this is one song and video that will tug at your heartstrings.
