Punk pop group Yellowcard are set to show off their classical side after recording a new ballad with violinist SEAN MACKIN conducting a 25-piece orchestra.

The track, HOW I GO, on new album Lights And Sounds offers an unusual duet between Yellowcard frontman RYAN KEY and DIXIE CHICKS singer Natalie Maines.

A spokesman for Yellowcard says the duet came about when the two groups found themselves working together at the same Hollywood recording studio.
