Rod Stewart has brought in Robbie Williams to sing a duet on his new orchestral album.
The Maggie May rocker has reimagined his biggest hits for his new record, You’re In My Heart: Rod Stewart with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
For the album, Robbie and Rod have recorded a new version of It Takes Two, the Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston track he and Tina Turner had a hit with in 1990.
According to The Sun, the pair have become pals while living in the U.S., and wanted to team up on a song for a while.
A music insider told the British newspaper: “Rod and Robbie have long been fans of each other’s work and Robbie sees Rod as an inspirational mentor. They socialize regularly in the U.S., where they both live, and have been waiting for this moment for a long time.
“Robbie and Rod have finally managed to fit in studio time to lay down vocals for the song, which they are hoping to release later this year on Rod’s upcoming album. It’s an iconic moment for them both – and they sound great together.”
The pair’s wives, Penny Lancaster and Ayda Field, who are both panelists on U.K. TV talk show Loose Women, are reportedly delighted with the new track. Robbie is also apparently planning to join Rod to sing the track at some of his U.K. and Ireland gigs this autumn.
The Sailing singer, 74, also recently revealed that he has beaten prostate cancer after a three year battle.
You’re In My Heart: Rod Stewart with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be released on 22 November.
