Usher is teaming up with British musician Labrinth for a track on his new album.

The R&B star is big fan of the producer's work and made sure he got to know Labrinth after touring in the U.K. with London rapper Tinie Tempah last year (11).

And he can't wait to get in the studio with Labrinth to work on a collaboration for his upcoming album.

He tells British radio station Capital FM, "We actually haven't finished this one but I'm working with Labrinth and that is my big surprise for London.

"Well you know me and Tinie Tempah, we toured together here in London and it was my opportunity to get close to him and just listen to all the different things that he and Labrinth had been working on and listen to all the music that I know and admire that Labrinth did".
