Canadian electronic duo DVBBS are teaming up with Rush's Alex Lifeson on a remake of Closer to the Heart. From BWW Music:

Canadian-born duo DVBBS (pronounced 'dubs') who are also brothers Chris and Alex Van den, Hoef, have taken the EDM scene by storm with their action-packed big room sound over the last few years. This year they have been busy touring, collaborating and making new music with some of the biggest artists in the music business. Their current collaboration has them in the studio with Canadian Rock Legends Rush working on famed song "Closer to the Heart". "When we first had dinner with Ray Daniels, Rush manager, we couldn't be any more excited hearing the stories", Chris said. "I grew up a drummer so Neil Peart was a legend to me and a strong influence my whole childhood and music career. They're the greatest Canadian band of all time so when we were given the chance to remake a song and implement new music and production with Alex Lifeson, you can imagine how excited we were. Can't wait to play people the song, and bridge the gap between generations says Alex." ...

The song will be available for download sometime in early 2017. Thanks to Eric at Power Windows for the heads up.
