Ashlee Simpson has gained the partnership of The Cure after a brief meeting.
An unlikely pair has teamed up for collaboration in an album. English rock band The Cure agreed to help pop singer Ashlee Simpson working on her third album after the band attended her show as Roxie Hart in musical "Chicago".
Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy stands in the middle of the two but denied any participation on the alliance. "I doubt I had anything to do with it, 'cause they were friends since she was performing in Chicago. But I definitely only have good things to say about Ash--I think the collaboration could be great," he said.
Produced by Ron Fair, Ashlee's album is expected to be out before 2008. She is currently in the writing process which according to news involves several renowned names such as Tom Petty, Pharrell Williams, Linda Perry, India.Arie, and will.i.am. There have also been further reports on the involvement of Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley, Chad Hugo, and John Legend.
