Matthew Morrison is “honoured” to be duetting with Sting on his new album.
The ‘Glee’ star is set to release his self-titled debut LP next week – which features collaborations with stars including Sir Elton John, Gwyneth Paltrow and ‘American Idol’ winner Kris Allen – and has finally confirmed rumours he is teaming up with the former Police frontman for a track.
He told Entertainment Weekly: “I am happy to confirm that the final duet on my album is with one of my icons, a musical genius, Sting. I was honoured that he agreed to do the duet and allow me to sing with him on one of his most incredible songs, ‘Let Your Soul Be My Pilot’.”
Matthew recently revealed he is excited to finally be releasing the album because recording has been such a “slow” process.
He said: “I’ve been sitting on this material for a while. I recorded a lot of it during the first hiatus from ‘Glee’ about a year ago, but it’s been a slow process. Now that ‘Glee’ has started back up again, I’ve been doing all my recordings on every single weekend, so I’m actually dying to go to sleep.”
