Bolton Collaborates With Rahman For New Album

American singer-songwriter Michael Bolton has collaborated with Grammy award winning music composer AR Rahman for his latest album Gems - The Duets Collection.

The new album, to be released on June 21 on Sony music, will feature productions by acclaimed songwriters, producers and musicians including David Foster, Dann Huff, Rudy Perez, besides Rahman.

"The opportunity to work with legendary talent like David Foster, Dan Huff, A R Rahman and some of the absolute greatest singers and recording artists in the entire world was inspiring. I can't wait to share the special music we all created with the world," Bolton said in a statement.

Oscar winning Indian composer Rahman's song Sajna from Couples Retreat will be part of the album.

"When I first met Michael, we got to talking about music, philosophy, the universe and many things that we had in common," shares Rahman. "I wanted Michael to do a bit of singing that he's never done before, without compromising on his musicality."

Gems - The Duets Collection also includes musical collaborations with Grammy award-winning American band Rascal Flatts, international pop star Seal, Australian singing sensation Delta Goodrem, and famed late vocalist Eva Cassidy.
