Soul great RON ISLEY will team up with easy listening king Burt Bacharach on a new album and concert tour.

The ISLEY BROTHERS star will record Bacharach classics for the album and then will hit the road with the songwriter and his orchestra for shows in New York and Los Angeles.

A third show in London is being negotiated.

Bacharach's last studio album was another collaboration - he joined ELVIS COSTELLO on PAINTED BY MEMORY.
