'Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot' follows Morrison's first single 'Summer Rain' and is the classic rock ballad from Sting's 1996 album 'Mercury Falling.' For Morrison, working with Sting was a major milestone in his young career as a solo artist. "I was fortunate to meet Sting two years ago at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C. I have always been a massive fan of his and to meet him was incredible," the Broadway-turned-TV-star reveals. "Now to have had the opportunity to sing with him on one of his greatest songs is a dream come true."
Other notable collaborations on Morrison's album include duets with Elton John, a track penned by 'American Idol' winner Kris Allen and a reunion duet with 'Glee' guest star Gwyneth Paltrow.
Morrison kicks of a 22-city, six-week US summer tour June 18 in Minneapolis. The album, 'Matthew Morrison,' is out Tuesday, May 10 -- the same day as the premiere of his exclusive live performance and interview with AOL Music Sessions.
