Sir Elton John and Lady Gaga have been total besties since teaming up for an explosive performance at this year's Grammy Awards. Now, the pair are hooking up again, this time for a duet for the Gnomeo & Juliet soundtrack. This is going to be absolutely brilliant!
The Guardian reports that Gaga and John's song, "Hello, Hello," marks their first ever studio collaboration. The Disney animated film is directed by Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) and plays upon William Shakespeare's most celebrated tale, but in the land of gnomes. James McAvoy and Emily Blunt lend their voices to the film's main characters, while Sir Michael Caine, Stephen Merchant, Dame Maggie Smith, and Ozzy Osbourne also take part in the PG-rated flick, which is set to hit theaters nationwide next February.
Disney and John have also had a longstanding relationship for over 15 years. In 2006, The Walt Disney Company named him a Disney Legend for his many contributions to Disney’s films and other theatrical productions, which include The Lion King and Aida.
Yesterday, Gaga took to her Twitter account to share in the celebration of John's new album, The Union, plus share a fabulous photo of herself with John's partner, David Furnish. The 16-song set, which was released via Decca last week, is John's new collection with singer/songwriter Leon Russell. It's also his 30th studio LP.
