Before Olivia Newton-John passed, she recorded Just the Two of Us: The Duets Collection,the full set is expected to be released on May 5.
Dolly says, “I’m thrilled to be working with Olivia Newton-John, one of my all-time favorites. We’ve always been close, and I’m so proud to be a part of this duet project she’s putting out.”
Newton-John says “I have always wanted to record with Dolly. She was always there for me, and what she did for me early on in my career in Nashville is something I will never forget.”
Newton-John’s upcoming duets album also features collaborations with Mariah Carey, Michael McDonald, John Travolta, Barry Gibb, Vanessa Amorosi, Jon Secada, her daughter Chloe Lattanzi, and many more.
