For the first time in almost 35 years, Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta have reunited for a new holiday album to be released November 9.
This Christmas will feature a sequel to the iconic Grease song, You’re the One That I Want, titled I Think You Might Like It, created by the writer and producer of the original classic duet.
The sound of the album has been inspired by classic American TV holiday specials and will feature Christmas songs from an all-star line-up including Barbara Streisand, Tony Bennett, Kenny G and Cliff Richard.
Travolta had the idea for the album after he was informed by Newton-John that their Grease classic had become the best-selling duet in pop history.
“From the moment we decided to do this, magic happened. Everyone we contacted agreed to do it,” Travolta said in a media release.
“It just fell into place. John and I have always connected. That’s never gone away. When we’re together, we have a good laugh and feel bonded to one another. We’ve been through some amazing experiences together,” Newtown-John added.
Proceeds from the album will go towards the Jett Travolta foundation, named for the actor’s late son, and Newton-John’s Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne.
