It's been 34 years since they starred together in the hit movie Grease, and now they've reunited to make a holiday album called This Christmas to be released on Nov. 13. On the cover of the CD, 58-year-old Travolta and 64-year-old Newton-John can be seen holding cups of cocoa with big smiles on their faces, surrounded by presents in front of the Christmas tree. Who knew Sandy and Danny would last so long? (Well, we had always hoped...)
This Christmas will feature the former costars singing on 13 tracks, including one exciting new one for all you Grease lovers out there. Grease songwriter John Farrar wrote a new song called "I Think You Might Like It" that is supposed to act as a sequel to the hit "You're the One That I Want."
Apparently this whole idea sparked after Newton-John messaged Travolta last Christmas.
"John and I have always connected," Newton-John says in the press release. "That's never gone away. When we're together, we have a good laugh and feel bonded to one another. We've been through some amazing experiences together."
Travolta adds, "My desire was to make This Christmas an intimate album, not something too ostentatious or showy."
At least the duo made the album for the right cause. Proceeds from its sales will go towards the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre.
