New music from Placido Domingo, Lynyard Skynyrd & Van Morrison set for release

Duet albums continue to be the rage for music veterans looking to reach new followers through the fan bases of younger artists. This time it’s opera great Placido Domingo who’s gathered up a gaggle of musical pals for a sing-along record that’s due October 16th from Sony Classical.

Domingo, regarded my many as the world’spd2.jpgpreeminent tenor since the death of his Three Tenors bandmate Luciano Pavarotti, will team up at the mike with Josh Groban for „Sous Le Ciel de Paris,“ Susan Boyle partners with the maestro on „From This Moment On,“ and Crescent City crooner Harry Connick Jr. joins Domingo on „Time After Time.“ Also featured with the famed tenor are TV’s Megan Hilty; Domingo’s son, Placido Jr.; super star mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins and German singer-songwriter Xavier Naidoo. So far Lady Gaga has not been confirmed as one of Domingo’s vocal hookups for this project.
In addition to the duets Domingo will include solo renditions of „Besame Mucho,“ and „Un Uomo Tra La Folla.“

2008 hat Josh schon einmal ein Duett mit Plácido aufgenommen. Das Lied heißt „La Tua Semplicità“ und ist auf der CD „Amore Infinito“ zu hören.

Hier gibt es ein Video dazu:
