The 'Glee' couple hooks up in the slow-riding jam of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' which is re-recorded for Matthew's album.
Matthew Morrison and Gwyneth Paltrow's duet track "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" has been made available for download in iTunes. The classic tune is a song he used to audition for "Glee", and it's re-recorded by him and the "Country Strong" actress for his upcoming debut album.
Explaining his song choice, Matthew said, "People kind of know me for that song now." He then added, "I wanted to do a duet with a female. I thought that was a good song to do, and we really did a different arrangement of it. It's a lot of strings, and it's beautiful."
Beside booking Gwyneth for a studio hook-up, Matthew also eyes to bring the "Iron Man" beauty to his tour. In an interview with OUT magazine, he gushed, "I'm going on a world tour this summer, and I'm hoping maybe in London she'll come on stage and help me out with a song."
Matthew is expected to release his album in the United States on May 10. He will start a promotional tour on June 18 at Orpheum Theatre in Matneapolis, MN. The Mr. Will Schuester depicter will perform not only songs from the new album but also many of the "Glee" fan favorites.
