James Morrison didn't expect Nelly Furtado to agree to sing with him on his track 'Broken Strings'
James Morrison was surprised when Nelly Furtado agreed to sing with him.
The 'Maneater' singer lends her vocals to 'Broken Strings' - a track on his forthcoming album 'Songs For You, Truths For Me' - but Morrison never thought she would say yes to a collaboration.
He said: "I'm really happy with the album, there's a song on there with Nelly Furtado which I'm really excited about, it's great.
"I had a track and I wanted a girl singer on it and she was the first person to come to mind. I thought, 'I'll go for it, but she might say no.' I aimed high and she was well up for doing it, so it all worked out good."
Once in the studio, James was even happier with his choice of vocalist, and admitted he even developed a small crush on her.
He added to BANG Showbiz: "She's cool, she's kooky, she's really professional, a great singer and beautiful to look it - you can't lose really."
