Two Flawless Vocal Queens Have Recorded A Duet


Jewel and Kelly Clarkson have recorded a duet of "Foolish Games" for Jewel's forthcoming Greatest Hits, out Feb. 5. The 17-track set will also include a new, angsty duet of "You Were Meant For Me" with the Pistol Annies, as well as the original recordings of both songs, two new songs, "Jupiter," "Hands," "Who Will Save Your Soul," "Down So Long," "Standing Still," "Break Me," "Intuition," "Good Day," "Stronger Woman," "Satisfied," and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."

"I just wanted to do some duets with some artists I really liked and some voices I like," Jewel explains. "Kelly was amazing. She was a hoot to have in the studio. She had done 'Foolish Games' in several talent shows prior to 'American Idol,' so she really knew it. I'm such a fan of her voice and love what she added to the song. She was so effortless on it. It's neat to hear it in her new light."



Jewel begins a 14-date tour to promote "Greatest Hits" on March 7 in Englewood, N.J. As for a next album, Jewel -- who's also been writing "quite a bit of prose" she hopes to publish soon (oh, hell) -- has a few concepts to choose from.

"I have a lot of albums in mind, and I'm not sure which will be first," she says. "I have a country album written. I'd really like to do a follow-up to 'Pieces of You.' I'd love to do a standards record; I grew up loving Cole Porter, and that's what got me into songwriting, so I've written a few like that. I don't know how much stomach I have for another big release with lots of promotion, so we'll have to see which way I decide to go."


Can't wait to hear it!! Jewel has such a beautiful, unique voice. I'm hoping Kellegend brings some Irvine realness to this track.
