2CELLOS' Upcoming Album Will Feature Elton John, Glee's Naya Rivera and More
Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, known as 2CELLOS, are back with a brand new music video and a new album. Entitled IN2ITION (pronounced Intuition) and produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, KISS), the album is set for release on January 15, 2013 through Sony MASTERWORKS and is currently available for preorder at Amazon and iTunes.
The galactic themed music video for their single is a flirtatious and "come-hiter" version of Muse's hit "Supermassive Black Hole" featuring Glee's Naya Rivera on vocals as you've never seen or heard her before.
E! News teased the music video this week and now Gleeks and 2CELLOS fanatics alike can catch the full length music video when it premieres TODAY on Vevo. Check out the stream below:
2CELLOS have established themselves as an innovative classical-pop/rock duo who have taken their classical instrument into the contemporary repertoire. On IN2ITION, they advance their original concept even further by including guest artists like Elton John, guitarist Steve Vai, Glee's Naya Rivera, classical superstar Lang Lang, legendary Italian vocalist Zucchero and pop artist Sky Ferreira. IN2ITION was recorded in Zagreb, Rome, Nashville, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
The duo achieved sensational success on their 2011 self-titled debut by taking the cello to a new level and breaking the boundaries between different genres of music. 2CELLOS unique dueling cello version of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" took the world by storm. The YouTube video became a huge viral sensation leading to a record deal with Sony MASTERWORKS and an invitation to join Elton John on his worldwide tour. The duo have since toured extensively with Elton John, including a performance at The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace this summer. Capping a year of highlights, the duo recently joined Red Hot Chili Peppers onstage in Croatia for a blistering performance of "Californication."
The new 2CELLOS album offers a fresh and unique twist on classics such as Fleetwood Mac ("Oh, Well" feat. Elton John), The Prodigy ("Voodoo People"), Coldplay ("Clocks" feat. Lang Lang), Rihanna ("We Found Love"), AC/DC ("Highway To Hell" feat. Steve Vai), Muse ("Supermassive Black Hole" feat. Naya Rivera), Cher and Nancy Sinatra ("Bang Bang" feat. Sky Ferreira), The Police ("Every Breath You Take") and Elton John ("Candle In The Wind").
