New single "Finally Found You" available on iTunes.
Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb has died after a long battle with cancer.
In a statement, Gibb's family announced his death with "great sadness".
Gibb, 62, who had undergone intestinal surgery, notched up dozens of hits with brothers Maurice and Barry - as performers and writers - and sold more than 200 million records.
"The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time," the statement released on Sunday said.
The Bee Gees' song catalogue, which includes Massachusetts, I've Gotta Get A Message To You, Lonely Days, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart, How Deep Is Your Love and Stayin' Alive, led to their induction into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Gibb's twin brother Maurice died of a heart attack in 2003 following intestinal surgery.
Broadcaster Paul Gambaccini said Gibb was "talented beyond even his own understanding".
"Everyone should be aware that the Bee Gees are second only to Lennon and McCartney as the most successful songwriting unit in British popular music," Gambaccini said.
"Their accomplishments have been monumental. Not only have they written their own number one hits, but they wrote huge hit records for Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Celine Dion, Destiny's Child, Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, the list goes on and on.
"What must also be said is Robin had one of the best white soul voices ever. He was singing lead on his first number one when he was 17, that was Massachusetts.

Oh I remember as being a kid I so loved the Bee Gees. They were awesome. And even now when I hear a song of them on the radio I just sing along. They had so much sunny songs that made you feel good when you listened to them. Or when they passed by on the radio. Everything seemed a little brighter then. I just adored the song : Massachusetts ! Gosh I love that song so much ! It won't ever be the same without him ! May he rest in Peace !
I just found this beautiful clip of the Bee Gees with Celine Dion..on a song they wrote for her..Immortality..Peace and love all...Godspeed...
Hi Sarah - I know this song and video so well - It just touching your heart so deeply as it did the Bee Gees while recording it with Celine- Healthier days for the 3 Gibb brothers - Just makes me want to cry listening to it - Still can't believe Robin has passed even though his health was declining rapidly at the end -
Forever in my Heart <3
Thanks Jennifer...it helps so much to have all ages here and to be all such kindred hearts...we would not love E like we do if all that hope and love in his songs did not hit our soul (so combined with who he is) to us, we have these sweethearts of the past who held that bar and there are so few now in the busines that do..it is just so great to be able to share these deep feelings about our music loves and have one current guy that can fill the bill.
Thanks...E loves music..his whole cool thing is he got such a killer mix growing up in the 80's, I know he respects now this kind of feeling..thanks so much for your response..it really helps...maybe this for you is a little like MJ was for me...I did love the Bee Gees though too.
2 distinct memories..one the long roads we drove as a kid in real remote ranch country here and loathing the winter..and dark and terminal feeling and having the Bee Gees come on the radio...pure opposition to my scene and total joy....Another was my grandad's last album purchase was Barbara Streisand and Gibb..he loved that song Guilty and he would always keep a notebook in the funny stero console where the records went and listen and write down the word to learn them...I loved that about him because he was a pretty concentrated buisiness man ..but had that kid side..he would only have music with words..LOL...ok now I will enjoy and listen to these songs..thanks..big help for my day here...
