In October, it was announced that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Elton John[/lastfm] would join forces with Glee‘s [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Matthew Morrison[/lastfm] on Morrison’s debut album. But with a tour, a new CD with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Leon Russell[/lastfm], executive producing and providing music for Gnomeo & Juliet, AND a new baby, Elton’s schedule was a little busy.
On Monday he finally made it into the studio with Morrison to record a mashup (something which Morrison’s Mr. Schuester character would have been proud) of two classic Elton John/[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bernie Taupin[/lastfm] tunes, Mona Lisas & Madhatters and Rocket Man.
Sir Elton told Parade magazine:
I just did it! It’s a duet. It’s great, really fantastic. He sings great on it.
You can’t argue with that. Now, check out the trailer for Morrison’s upcoming project.
Does this news make you want to buy Morrison’s album more or less? Do you think the star power of the John can propel Morrison up the charts? Tell us in the comments below.
