October 22, 2010 9:06 AM ET

Lady Gaga and Elton John, who teamed up to open the 52nd Annual Grammys back in January, have collaborated on a new song, "Hello, Hello." It will appear on the soundtrack for the animated Disney film Gnomeo and Juliet (and not on Gaga's upcoming album Born This Way), EW's The Music Mix reports. The film hits theaters February 11th, 2011. Gaga and John performed "Pokerface," "Speechless" and Elton's "Your Song" at the Grammys, and John has since been keen on working with Gaga on new music. "I'd love to [work with her] in the future," John recently told EW. "There's a chance I might do one track with her [for Born This Way], but it's just, she's so busy, and I'm so busy, we can never get together!"

John, who is a producer on Gnomeo and Juliet, co-wrote the movie's soundtrack with composer James Newton Howard. He has contributed music to movies before — most notably with his Oscar-winning The Lion King soundtrack — "Hello, Hello" marks Gaga's first contribution to a film.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
