Kylie Minogue asked James Corden to appear on her upcoming holiday record.
Following the release of her unannounced ‘Kylie + Garibay’ EP is another surprise: the Australian pop princess asked comedian/actor James Corden to feature on her disco-inspired Christmas record.
“James recorded the track in secret with Kylie after she asked him to feature,” a source told The Sun. “It was meant to be the jokey song on the album but producers were so impressed there’s a strong chance it’s going to be the lead single. James is a very good singer and the song is actually a great listen.”
The collaboration might seem a bit of random, but the two co-hosted the Brit awards in 2009 together. Plus, Corden admits he’s a big Christmas music lover and jokingly said he’d love to have a holiday album of his own.
“Almost for my own enjoyment – and when I say my own enjoyment, I mean just to record for myself to keep in my house – I have started to think I should make a Christmas album,” adding “I love Christmas music so much that I start listening to it in October. I’ve started listening to the Michel Bublé album and I’m thinking maybe I’ll just do it on my own.”
