The Script singer Danny O'Donoghue and his fellow The Voice UK mentor will.i.am have collaborated on a new track.

The two became unlikely friends while shooting the British TV talent show this year and now they've teamed up in the studio with O'Donoghue's bandmates.

New tune Hall Of Fame will be the first single released from The Script's new album.

"I played Will a few demos backstage early on in The Voice. We got to Hall Of Fame and he immediately asked if he could have it for his new album, as it was exactly what he was looking for," O'Donoghue tells The Sun newspaper.

"I wasn't having it; it was our lead single, but I asked if he'd be on it. He agreed and we booked in time to record it," he said.

But The Script singer admits it wasn't easy to nail his busy pal down to studio time, adding, "He's either late or completely flakes, so it took four attempts to get him to record his part. Eventually we put it together in his hotel room in 15 minutes."
