The soundtrack for the animated film Gnomeo & Juliet was released on February 8, 2011, three days before the film's initial release. It features music by Elton John, Nelly Furtado, Kiki Dee, and selections from the score composed by Chris P. Bacon and James Newton Howard (who played keyboards for Elton John and arranged strings on many previous projects). The duet of John and Lady Gaga for "Hello, Hello" was featured in the film, released on February 11, 2011, but the soundtrack version only has John.[1] Additionally, on May 4, 2011 the duet was leaked online and available for download on most sharing websites.
