"Hello Hello" Duet Only Available in Theatres
If you want to hear Sir Elton John's latest duet with Lady Gaga, you'll have to buy a cinema ticket.
The soundtrack version of Hello Hello, the slow-tempo pop ditty written by Sir Elton and Bernie Taupin for the animated film Gnomeo & Juliet, only features Sir Elton, while the rendition including Lady Gaga is only in the film. A spokeswoman for Buena Vista Records confirmed the duet is only in the film and wouldn't be released on radio.
Sir Elton said in an interview that he asked Gaga to join him for the song last year after she performed at a charity benefit at his home. Their collaboration could end up on her upcoming album, Born This Way, though it's unlikely because the duo aren't labelmates. A spokesman for Interscope, Lady Gaga's label, declined to comment.
Lady Gaga is expected to perform the title track from Born This Way on February 13 at the Grammys, the same awards show where Sir Elton joined Lady Gaga last year for a mash-up of her Speechless and his Your Song. Sir Elton said he's heard Born This Way and called it "the song that will wipe I Will Survive off the map." Lady Gaga released the song's lyrics on Twitter last week.
