Simon Collins has covered a song from his Dad Phil's band Genesis, the ABACAB track 'Keep It Dark'. It sounds great and you can download it for free here, all you have to do is sign up for Simon's newsletter. A bit about the recording from the website:

I have never known a world without Genesis. Their music is the soundtrack to my life, and "Keep it Dark" is only a snap shot in time. To honor Genesis on their 40th anniversary, I thought covering "Keep it Dark" would be a perfect way to give something back. It was my attendance at the NYC Genesis rehearsals in October last year that sparked this project. It was at those sessions, I met and befriended Sonic Reality Software CEO & Producer, David Kerzner. We connected instantly, and once I had mentioned to him my 10 year obsession with covering this song, we both agreed it would be a brilliant and exciting project to do together. So, earlier this year I flew down to Florida to co-produce "Keep it Dark" with Dave at Sonic Reality's headquarters. It was a wild ride into cyber production that would lead to a very futuristic sounding impression of the '82 Abacab track. So, enough of my yackin...I am proud to present "Keep it Dark", futurized and Simonized.
