Keith Urban will join Olivia Newton-John on her forthcoming album, Olivia Newton-John & Friends: A Celebration in Song, reports.

The two will sing “Sunburned Country,” which the two Australian singers co-wrote for an earlier album of Newton-John’s Olivia (2).

Royalties from her new project are being donated to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Center, a comprehensive center for the treatment, care and research of all types of cancer.

The album, which comes out Sept. 2, is important to Newton-John, 60, a breast cancer survivor herself, and will also include pairings with musical friends such as Sir Cliff Richard, Barry Gibb, John Farrar Delta Goodrem and Richard Marx.

“I’m so delighted to bring you these songs with the help of a group of talented friends – some old and some new – who have donated their gifts and their time for this new collaboration,” Newton-John told The Wall Street Journal.
