'Glee's' Warblers CD Released; Hear Matt Morrison, Elton John Duet

Columbia Records(NEW YORK) -- The seventh full-length soundtrack album from the cast of Glee hits stores on Tuesday, but this one's a little different.

Glee: The Music Presents The Warblers is the first soundtrack to feature, exclusively, music from the Dalton Academy Warblers, the vocal group at Kurt's school, Dalton Academy.  Led by Blaine, played by Darren Criss, the group warbles its way through fan favorites like "Teenage Dream," "Raise Your Glass," "Hey Soul Sister" and "Misery," as well as previously-unheard versions of Rod Stewart's "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy" and Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know."

The popularity of the Warblers' tracks -- especially "Teenage Dream" -- helped lead the Glee cast to their history-making chart success, which saw them eclipse both The Beatles and Elvis Presley for the title of the artist with the most Billboard Hot 100 singles ever.

In other Glee music news, another sneak peek at Matthew Morrison's upcoming debut album has hit online.  This time, it's a mashup duet he's recorded with none other than Sir Elton John.  The track mixes together two of Elton's classics, both from his 1972 album Honky Chateau: "Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters" and "Rocket Man."

Morrison has said that the epic seven-minute track is his favorite song on the album, which will also feature a duet with Gwyneth Paltrow.  Paltrow is set to return to Glee Tuesday night.
