Elton John is giving Glee star Matthew Morrison a career boost - by recording a duet with him for his new album.

The British rocker is a huge fan of the hit TV show, in which Matthew Morrison plays singing-and-dancing teacher Will Schuester, and he has revealed he'll be joining the actor in the studio when he records his debut solo album.

Sir Elton John tells Entertainment Weekly, "I am supposed to be doing something with Matthew Morrison for his album. We had a little meeting together, so hopefully that's going to happen when I get to L.A."

But the Rocket Man doesn't think that will lead to a full Elton Glee tribute, like the ones dedicated to Britney Spears, Lagy Gaga and Madonna - even though he wouldn't be averse to such an idea.

He adds, "I love Glee, but no, no. Of course I'd be into that. It's always great when someone covers your songs no matter how good or bad the version is."
