Hall & Oates star JOHN Oates has teamed up with rockers Hot Chelle Rae for a new single.

The quartet provides backing for the Maneater hitmaker's new single, High Maintenance.

Oates says, "What I really was excited about was to get to experience the way they make a record. I wanted them to produce me. I wanted to jump into their world and see how a modern pop band really makes their records."

High Maintenance is the lead single from Oates' forthcoming Good Road to Follow album.

The 1980s star is planning to release a single each month from the project, which also includes a collaboration with country singer Vince Gill.
