Disney and Matthew Morrison Creating New Disney Classics Cover Album. Matthew Morrison is a talented actor, singer, and dancer, commonly referred to as a triple threat in the entertainment industry. He is best known for his many performances on Broadway and his role as Will Schuester/Mr. Schu on the popular TV series, Glee.
According to Billboard, Morrison is working with Disney to create a new Disney Classics cover album which will be released in early 2020. Disney Music Group President Ken Bunt is very happy to be teaming up with Morrison for this new album that will contain Disney Classics that Matthew feels a strong connection too.
“Matthew has so many talents and we are thrilled that he is putting his voice to Disney classics that are so personal to him,” says Bunt.
“I have never felt so much joy and connection in making an album,” Morrison says in a statement regarding the new album. “Every note, every word I sang was for my son, Revel James. There’s a beautiful feeling of nostalgia that is forever connected to the Disney catalog, and my goal was to deliver an album that reconnects us all to the magic of youth.”
Morrison has been enjoying his time working with The House of Mouse and even shared this adorable picture of him and his wife, Renee, from the red carpet at the Mary Poppins Returns premiere via his twitter account, @Matt_Morrison.
