Over the years, Elton John has recorded duets with everyone from Kiki Dee to George Michael to Lady Gaga , so it's no surprise to hear that he's recorded yet another collaboration, this time with veteran English pop crooner Engelbert Humperdinck .
The BBC reports that John and Humperdinck cut their song in Los Angeles for inclusion an all-star album of duets that Engelbert plans to release next year. "We had a great time singing together," the BBC quotes John as saying of Humperdinck. "He is so quick, what I call a 'one-take singer' -- 76 years old and still sounding as good as ever." Elton added that the older vocalist is "one of the sweetest and nicest people I have ever worked with."
Engelbert, whose birth name is Arnold Dorsey , has sold more than 150 million records worldwide and is best known for his hits "Release Me" and "After the Lovin'." He called the upcoming duets album a "labor of love," and added that he's "honored" that John contributed to the record.
