Two of TV biggest shows have come together for a collaboration of sorts, with Glee’s Matthew Morrison and American Idol’s Kris Allen working together on a track.

A new track on Morrison’s upcoming solo album was written by the Idol season 8 winner several years ago, but he never used it for himself.

Morrison acquired the track through working with the same songwriters, Andrew Frampton and Steve Kipner, as Allen had years ago.

“The funny thing is I didn’t even know he wrote on it,” says Morrison. “Steve and Andrew said they had this song and I heard it and I was like ‘Oh my God this song is incredible.’ I just put down a vocal on it. The first I heard about [Kris' involvement] was he tweeted it that he had a song on my record.”

Allen adds: “I got an email a couple weeks ago from one of the guys and it said, ‘Hey man, we’re gonna get this new song on the Matthew Morrison record.’ And they said it was going to be the next single so it was pretty exciting.”
