Matthew Morrison is getting ready to release his debut solo album, and to get everyone excited about it, he stopped by the AOL Sessions studio to perform a few songs, including 'Over the Rainbow.'

But don't expect Mark Salling join the 'Glee' cast member -- Matthew is singing this one solo. The song is actually going to be on his new album as a duet with Gwyneth Paltrow, aka Holly Holliday.
"She's such a good singer and she gets nervous to sing, which is funny because she sang at everything this year -- the Grammys, the Oscars -- and she was such a nervous wreck every time she had to go out there, but she was amazing every single time," Matthew says of Gwyneth in his AOL Sessions interview.

He adds, "She didn't really know the song; obviously she knew 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow,' but she didn't know that version so I taught it to her in the studio and she picked it up really fast because she's got a great ear."

Watch Matthew's solo performance of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' below and check out his full Sessions Performance here. The 'Glee' stars' self-titled debut will be available on iTunes on May 10.
