Bryan Adams made a surprise appearance on ABC’s The View on Friday, joining girl-group legend Darlene Love for a rousing rendition of her soulful 1963 holiday classic “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).”
The performance, which was part of The View‘s annual holiday episode, featured the chat show’s co-hosts singing backing vocals.
After the performance, Adams revealed that he plans to release a new studio album in March 2019 titled Shine a Light, and announced exclusively that it will include a duet with Jennifer Lopez. Bryan also gave a shout-out to J.Lo’s mother, who was in the audience.
Adams will kick off the New Year with a tour of his home country, Canada, which begins January 22 in Moncton, New Brunswick. He then will launch a U.K. trek in support of Shine a Light in February. Love has a series of holiday shows lined up this month in the northeastern U.S.
