As well as his work with Suicide, Vega produced visual art and collaborated with vast number of musicians, including Ric Ocasek, Alex Chilton, and Lydia Lunch. Vega's impact is felt across the musical world, and two of those inspired by his works have shared new tracks in his honour.
Welsh revealed "Me And Alan Vega", which he says is a "song 'about' him [from] 2011".
Meanwhile, Arcade Fire's Butler - as his alter-ego DJ Windows98 - shared a cover of "Dream Baby Dream" titled "K33p Ur Dr34ms Win98". As Stereogum note, Butler has covered the track before - with Arcade Fire and Talking Heads' David Byrne.
