Elton John & 'Glee' star Naya join 2cellos

Written by 

Elton John and 'Glee' actress Naya Riveria are amongst the amazing collaborations on the brand new album In2ition by 2CELLOS released through Sony Music on 4 March 2013. They're also joined by Lang Lang, Sky Ferreira, Steve Vai and Zuccero on this unique album with a classical twist.

Croatian duo Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, otherwise known as 2CELLOS, were personally chosen to join Elton John on his UK tour in 2011. Following a number of high profile shows, they have teamed up again in an incredible cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Oh, Well', with Elton providing vocals on the track.

Taking the US by storm with their self made video of Michael Jackson's 'Smooth Criminal', which received over 5 million You Tube views, the duo were snapped up to appear a on Season 3 of 'Glee' performing another highly impressive version of the Michael Jackson. This led to a collaboration with actress Naya Rivera, who plays Santana Lopez in the show. Naya provides vocals on a fully-charged cover of Muse's hit song 'Supermassive Black Hole', and will appear in the video for the song to be released early in 2013.

 

Other exciting collaborations include songstress and model, Sky Ferreira teaming up on a hauntingly beautiful cover of Nancy Sinatra's 'Bang Bang'. Critically-acclaimed pianist Lang Lang features on 'Clocks' by Coldplay, while Steve Vai adds some extra rock 'n' roll vibes to AC/DC's 'Highway to Hell'. Rihanna's 'We Found Love', 'Every Breath You Take' by The Police, The Prodigy's 'Voodoo People' and many more make up this stunning collection of unique interpretations. For the first time the duo have composed their own song 'Orient Express', which also features on the album. 

Having played cello since childhood and studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser have performed all over the world showcasing their unique cello abilities to an audience of both classical and pop fans across the globe. Their self-titled debut album gained high praise, and a series of gigs including London's iTunes Festival in 2011 had crowds speechless in awe of their unique talent.

In2ition is produced by award-winning Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd/Aerosmith/Kiss) and is released through Sony Music on 4 March 2013.
