I’ve got chills. They’re multiplying. Today came news that Grease co-stars Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta are reuniting for a Christmas-themed album that will feature a sequel to the duo’s 1978 hit “You’re the One That I Want.”
"I wanted people to be able to play it around the house or in the car during the holiday, and make us part of your celebration," Travolta said in a statement. "Gathering around the house listening to Christmas music has always been an important part of that time of year to my family."
Hitting stores November 13 (though you can pre-order it on Amazon.com), This Christmas will be a 13-track album featuring vocals from Travolta and Newton-John, as well as Barbra Streisand, Kenny G, Chick Corea, James Taylor, and Tony Bennett. The album will also include “I Think You Might Like It,” the sequel to Grease’s “You’re the One That I Want.” John Farrar, the musician behind the Grease hit also penned the sequel
“If it wasn't for that song, we wouldn't be here talking about it 30 years later," Newton-John said.
Proceeds from This Chrismas will go to John Travolta’s the Jett Travolta Foundation and Olivia Newton-John’s Cancer and Wellness Centre.
