John Travolta has been reunited with his Grease co-star Olivia Newton-John, for a forthcoming Christmas album, entitled 'This Christmas.' It's something of a surprise move from the actor, who has been busily defending himself against sexual assault claims and allegations that he is a closet homosexual. We're thinking that if he was really trying to prove to people that he's not gay, releasing a Christmas album with a ridiculously camp photograph of himself sharing a cup of tea (or coffee, maybe. or something else. we're not quite sure) with Olivia Newton-John possibly wasn't the strongest part of his game plan.
Music Fix and NineMSN.com have quoted Travolta as saying "My desire was to make This Christmas an intimate album, not something too ostentatious or showy." To achieve this aim, he invited Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, Cliff Richard and Kenny G to join him as guests on the album. Um, not ostentatious or showy at all, then, John? He added "I wanted people to be able to play it around the house or in the car during the holidays, and make us part of your celebration." Olivia added that it was a struggle getting the recording done, in amongst their hectic work lives: "It just fell into place. With our busy schedules, I don't know how we got it done. John and I have always connected. That's never gone away. When we're together, we have a good laugh and feel bonded to one another. We've been through some amazing experiences together."
Ostentatious or not, at least it's all for a good cause; proceeds from the album sales will go to the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne.
John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John will once again be multiplying chills with a new Christmas album, reports Entertainment Weekly. The proposed album will also feature the vocal talents of Tony Bennett, Barbra Streisand and Kenny G.
Christmas just comes earlier and earlier each year, doesn't it? It won't be long before Christmas cards are sold in the summer months and trees become freeze-able to be taken out on December 1st. Greece stars Travolta and Newton-John have kicked X-Mas mania off in early October this year, by announcing their reunification to collaborate on a Christmas album. "We all felt a wonderful, joyful energy while recording this album," Newton-John said in a statement. "We want to make a lot of people smile and happy. It's a project that we're hoping turns into a perennial, one that can continue to raise money for these causes year after year, a gift that keeps on giving." Diehard fans of their classic film, which shot the pair to stardom, will be delighted to learn that a You're the One That I Want 'sequel' will be on the festive record, entitled I Think You Might Like It, written John Farrar who also penned the original.
The guaranteed Christmas stocking success will be available on November 13th, 2012, but here's the track listing.
