If many of the duets on ABC’s new singing competition show Duets left you cold, you’ll fall head over heels for Christina Perri‘s collaboration with Jason Mraz on “Distance.”  In the rehearsal video for the song, off her album Lovestrong, the artists sing the melancholy tune together in the studio as cameras capture their emotional performance. In addition to having two complimentary voices, Perri and Mraz (who appears to have ditched his regular fedora to show off a longer coif) have undeniable chemistry.

“‘Distance’ is a song about loving someone at the wrong time in your life,” the “Jar Of Hearts” singer tells Rolling Stone, who premiered the video. “Maybe it’s too soon, maybe it’s too late, but nevertheless it’s about being around that one whom your heart longs for without being about to show your true feelings, without being able to tell them.”
