Luke Evans today reveals another stellar duet – this time with Nicole Kidman on ‘Say Something’ – taken from his stunning new album A Song For You – out November 4th on BMG. Listen to the song HERE.

The gorgeous collaboration with Kidman is an adaptation for a song in which Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World won the 2015 Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance – and came after the pair met during the filming of Hulu mini-series Nine Perfect Strangers in Australia. They spent five months working together, bonding offset, along with Kidman’s husband Keith Urban, in their shared love of music. 

Luke recounts; ”When we wrapped the show, we had a dinner one night in Keith and Nicole’s house in Sydney. After dinner, Nicole was like: ‘Right, you’re singing, Keith’s gonna play the piano. He’ll play anything, just tell him the song.’ So everybody came around the grand piano in their living room and I sang Adele’s ‘Make You Feel My Love’. I knew that Nicole loved to sing, so she joined in and we had a glorious sing along. It was an evening I will never forget.” 

Luke remembered that night when he was preparing to cover ‘Say Something’. He felt Kidman would be the perfect duet partner – although, equally, he knew how busy she is. But she responded instantly and enthusiastically to his suggestion.

He continues; “I already had that song in my head because I knew that it would fit both our voices very well. I knew they would blend perfectly, so I sent them the track and Nicole immediately loved it. She went into the recording studio with Keith in Nashville and recorded her part of the song. I have a little video of her recording in the booth. I think she enjoyed it very much. She said she was grateful I had asked her. Grateful? You have no idea how grateful I am!’ She is a lovely human being full of graciousness, humility and warmth. She was so generous with her time. To do something like this was really special.” 

A Song For You draws its title from the Donny Hathaway song that’s one of Evans’ lifelong favourites and with which he opens the 14-song selection. They are all delivered in his transcendent tenor, with orchestral backing and additional glorious, full-voiced support on key tracks from the world-famous, 130-year-old Treorchy Male Voice Choir. 

The Welshman is in huge demand as an actor, in the UK and internationally. From cinematic thrill-ride to prestige TV drama, classic big-screen animation to small-screen police procedurals, action to comedy to thriller. But give him half a chance and the star of The Hobbit, The Alienist, Fast and Furious 6, Dracula Untold and Beauty and the Beast will do what he’s always loved first and foremost: sing. 

I just feel really lucky as a singer, my first love, to do it again,” Evans concludes, “and to sing these magical songs on an album which I’ll have for the rest of my life. I want everyone else to share that joy, too.”
