Cover art of the century: Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta reunite for Christmas album

Best album cover ever: Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta reunite for Christmas release
We go together like ra-ma la-ma la-ma ka ding-a da ding-de dong ...

They're the ones that we want, and they're finally back together.

Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta have reunited for a Christmas album nearly 35 years since they became hopelessly devoted to one another as Sandy and Danny in Grease.

The cover art for This Christmas: John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John is as warm and fuzzy as it gets (a bit like John's questionably authentic hair). Who wouldn't want to wake up to these two crooning on Christmas Day?


Season's Grease-ings!

"My desire was to make This Christmas an intimate album, not something too ostentatious or showy," said John in a statement.

"I wanted people to be able to play it around the house or in the car during the holidays, and make us part of your celebration."

John, 58, and Olivia, 64, hit new highs with an original duet titled 'I Think You Might Like It', a sequel to the pair's iconic 'You're The One That I Want' (the highest-selling duet in pop music history).

"It just fell into place. With our busy schedules, I don't know how we got it done," Olivia added.

"John and I have always connected. That’s never gone away. When we’re together, we have a good laugh and feel bonded to one another. We’ve been through some amazing experiences together."

The album also features Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, Cliff Richard, and that master of saxophone sultriness, Kenny G.

It's all for a good cause — the proceeds of the album sales go to the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne.

It's out November 13 — right in time for those summer … niigh-haaaiii-ghts!
