Matthew Morrison is close to make music with Elton John for his upcoming debut album. The news was brought into attention by the British singer himself when doing a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. "I am supposed to be doing something with Matthew Morrison for his album," John spilled the beans. "We had a little meeting together, so hopefully that's going to happen when I get to L.A."
Commenting on the TV show in which Morrison plays singing-and-dancing teacher Will Schuester, John gushed, "I love Glee." However, he doesn't think the cast will make a full tribute episode for him like they did with Britney Spears, saying "[But if they do] of course I'd be into that. It's always great when someone covers your songs no matter how good or bad the version is."
Matthew Morrison inked a record deal with Mercury Records. "I'm writing all the music for it. It's me and a big orchestra behind me," he told Associated Press of his contribution to the album. He additionally described his style in the upcoming release as a cross between Michael Buble and Justin Timberlake.
