Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Glee star Matthew Morrison are reportedly recording a duet of Frank Sinatra’s hit old-time ballad Luck Be a Lady.

Adam launched his own record label called 222 in 2012 and Matthew is the star’s first official signed act.

Apparently the pair both have a deep love for classic tunes and are in the process of recording one for Matthew’s forthcoming album.

Us Weekly reports that an eyewitness spotted the pair leaving Capital Studios in Hollywood in early February after covering Luck Be a Lady together.

“Matthew wanted to make a Broadway standards record," the source told the publication.

"And Adam loves classic records."

The hit song was penned by Frank Loesser in 1950 and was featured in classic musical Guys and Dolls.

Frank Sinatra crooned the ballad and it became one of the late singer’s biggest hits.

Adam and Matthew, who have been friends for years, previously expressed their excitement over working with each other.

“Starting my own label has been a long time goal of mine and I am thrilled to be at the point in my career where it is finally happening,” Adam wrote in a statement to Billboard around the time he announced he was establishing his 222 label.

“I am excited for everyone to hear Matthew’s forthcoming album. Great things are in store for him with this release.”

Matthew shared Adam’s sentiments about their collaboration.

“I am excited to be working on my next album with such an incredible singer, writer and producer as Adam Levine," Matthew gushed. “Adam and I share the same vision as we begin working on my record together.”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
