Brace yourself. Lady Gaga is co-writing tracks with Michael Bolton, even set to duet with him, for Bolton's comeback album "One World One Love", releasing on September 14 (21 in the UK). Apparently Gaga is a huge fan and approached Bolton about the collaboration.
"I was taking a break from production when my manager and the label tag-teamed me on the phone about writing with a young artist named Lady GaGa who I had never heard of —but they were raving about—they said that she was a huge fan of mine and wanted to write with me," Bolton says.
After meeting up in the studio, the admiration was mutual. Says Bolton, "I realised she was not only about to have a big hit record but Gaga was a superstar about to launch - her energy was so high and her focus excited me. She reminded me of a young Madonna - with more exuberance and emphasis on the art rather than the marketing."
Listen to "Murder My Heart" above, the first release from Bolton's new album, written by HM Lady Gaga. Thoughts?
