Andrew Lloyd Webber, the man famed for the musicals Phantom of the Opera and Evita, has revealed that he is penning music alongside Take That's Gary Barlow.

According to an interview in The Sun, the Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat composer is on music duties on one track, with famed songwriter Barlow penning words.

"I've come up with the tune this time and he's already emailed me with lyrics this morning. It hasn't got a title yet," Lloyd Webber said.

And he suggested that the musical collaboration would continue somewhere nice and warm, saying: "Gary's going to be down in Majorca this summer and so will I, so we'll get together and something will come out of it."

It comes after Lloyd Webber and Barlow penned Sing, a song designed to mark the recent Diamond Jubilee.

Lloyd-Webber is currently taking part in an ITV1 programme that revolves around another of his musicals, Jesus Christ Superstar.

It aims to discover the man who will play Jesus in an upcoming production of the show. Spice Girl Mel C, who will star in Jesus Christ Superstar's new version, too, is one of the judges.
