Matthew Morrison And Kris Allen Team Up For “Still Got Tonight”

Matthew Morrison is unveiling the second single off his self-titled debut album, “Still Got Tonight”, and the uptempo love ballad comes with a little surprise — it was co-written by American Idol Season 8 winner Kris Allen. How much do you want to bet Fox brought these two fellas together to create some Idol/Glee synergy in the studio? Listen to the song below.

“I know times running out now / But we’ll hold back the sun somehow / See the sky? / We’ve still got tonight,” sings Morrison.

The tune was also co-written by Steve Kipner and Andrew Frampton, who contributed two tracks to Kris’ debut album, including the single “Live Like We’re Dying”. Wonder why Team Allen decided to give this one away to Mr. Schuester instead of saving it for the Idol winner’s next release (whenever that is)?

What do you think of Matthew’s new single? Truth be told, we’re kind of snoozing over here at all the tracks we’ve heard from Morrison so far. Not that we want him to go all edgy or anything, but having at least one sharp edge on his album would be welcome.
