Diehard Gleeks know that Mr. Shuester, oops, we mean Matthew Morrison, has a solo album coming out. The "Glee" star's solo album features Morrison duetting on “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” with Gwyneth Paltrow, aka Holly Holiday, as well as a collaborating with Elton John on a medley of “Mona Lisas and Madhatters” and “Rocket Man.”
To whet your appetite, Morrison’s label, Mercury, has released this very low key Paltrow-less video of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Watch it here. You can buy it on iTunes starting today. Although to use the word video is really a bit of a misnomer, since it’s a collection of stills of Morrison playing the song up against a gross, dingy white background. This has the production values of one of those little flip books that you used to have as a kid: you know, the kind that would kind you would flip the pages as quickly as possible to make the ballerina dance.
