Vanessa Amorosi has teamed up with American rockers Hoobastank for their latest single, “The Letter.”

“I loved the song, from the first time I heard it,” she says. “To be asked to sing on it by Hoobastank was amazing, they are a great bunch of guys.”

It’s a bit of a mutual admiration society, with Hoobastank singer Doug Robb gushing about Vanessa’s involvement with the project.

“She brought a haunting yet powerful quality to the song that we think sounds great. The video was a blast to make as well. She rounded out the story perfectly and I finally got to trash a room. This is one of my favourite videos of ours so far. It looks amazing.”

Vanessa’s achieved chart success in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, and here in Australia but she’s never taken a crack at the US market. It sounds like that may be about to change! Industry insiders say the pairing may be a sign that Vanessa’s preparing to release her last album Somewhere In The Real World in the United States.

We’ll get to hear the song on May 4, when it’s released to radio and TV outlets.
