Robin Gibb is recording a classical album inspired by the Titanic.

The as-yet-untitled album is expected to be released in April to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the RMS Titanic disaster.

The Bee Gees singer, who is currently battling liver cancer, says working on the project with his son RJ and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has “helped him on the way to recovery.”

“It has been an incredible experience working with my son,” he added. “There is a creative freedom and uninhibited state that comes from working with a family member.”
