Cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser of 2CELLOS have announced a new album and released a new music video – a “galactic-themed” version of Muse’s “Supermassive Black Hole” starring Naya Rivera (Glee). Their new album, IN2ITION, arrives in stores on January 15, 2013 and includes guests artists Elton John, Steve Vai, Lang Lang, Zucchero, and Sky Ferreira. Produced by Bob Ezrin, IN2ITION was recorded in Zagreb, Rome, Nashville, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
Discussing their collaboration with Rivera, Stjepan said, “We love Naya’s sexy voice – it’s perfect for this song! We recreated Muse’s amazing guitar riff on the cello and by using different sound effects, we gave this traditionally classical instrument a more contemporary, rock sound.”
“We became friends with Naya last year on the set of Glee and this is a perfect follow up to our appearance on the Michael Jackson tribute episode,” added Luka.
And it was Elton John himself who suggested 2CELLOS cover “Oh Well.” “Elton suggested that we cover ‘Oh Well’ because he thought it would be perfect for the cello. We said we’d do it if he sang on it and he agreed!” revealed Stjepan. “It’s a fairly unknown Fleetwood Mac song and Elton’s voice sounds amazing on the track.”
