A duet.

Lady Gaga is set appear on the soundtrack for Paul McCartney’s long-gestating animated film High In The Clouds.

McCartney’s movie has been in the works since 2009 – it’s an adaptation of his 2005 children’s book of the same name, and it appears things are finally moving along.

A report from Deadline says The Beatle tapped Jon Croker to pen it. He wrote The Woman In Black: Angel of Death and worked on the production draft of Paddington.

It will also produce a soundtrack featuring original music, including a song from Lady Gaga. It is believed her contribution is a duet with McCartney. The two collaborated together in 2015 specifically for this project.

“Had a beautiful session with Sir Paul McCartney and friends,” Gaga said on Instagram in a caption posted nearly three years ago. “Working on one of his many secret projects! Killer musicians, vibe, and lots of laughs.”

It’s worth mentioning that the song won’t be officially released for quite some time seeing as McCartney only just now found someone to write it, but hey… we’re closer today than ever to hearing it.

High In The Clouds tells the story of Wirral the squirrel, who “embarks on a journey to find the animal paradise of Animalia after his forest home is destroyed and his mother is killed by bulldozers.” Fun.

There are a lot more gritty details about the film that you can read here.
