Michael Buble is “thrilled” Reese Witherspoon has agreed to duet with him.
In October there was speculation that the Oscar-winning actress was considering singing with Michael for his new album. Michael has now confirmed the rumours are true and they will be working together next year.
“By all accounts that would be true, yeah,” he told UK TV show Daybreak when asked about his reported duet with Reese. “I am a big fan, so myself and my camp wanted to do this with her and we were thrilled that she was excited about it too. That will be a studio album next year.”
Michael has been busy this year and 2013 looks equally as hectic. Along with working on a new record, the 37-year-old star is also going on tour.
Although Michael still feels passionate about his music, he insists that once he has children with his wife, Argentine actress-and-model Luisana Lopilato, he will want to spend more time at home.
“It can’t always be like that,” he replied when asked if his work schedule is already mapped out for next year. “I won’t allow it to be like that because when I do have children my priority will be my family. My priority already is my family and I have been on that treadmill and I will continue for a couple of years and it’s not like I am going to stop but I will definitely slow down the pace so that I don’t have to hate myself for not being there for my family.”
Michael travels all around the world performing live and promoting his new material, while Luisana is also busy with her acting career.
The Italian Canadian crooner insists married life is “great” but admits that maintaining a long distance relationship can be tough.
Michael makes the most of any time he spends with Luisana, and goes to any length to ensure he makes her happy.
“We are definitely apart quite a bit, but I try to hang out with her as much as possible,” he explained. “When she is on set making a movie I go down there and my job is to rub her feet and bring her coffee, basically.”
