Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump has collaborated with former Morrissey tour mates Kristeenyoung on a track from their forthcoming album 'Music for Strippers, Hookers, And The Odd Onlooker'.

Stump provided additional vocals on the track 'That's What It Takes, Dear', and frontwoman Kristeen Young, says she was "a goner" when she first heard him sing her lyrics.

She said: "From the moment I first heard 'Sugar, We're Going Down' I was a goner. Like all heart-stopping moments, I remember my surroundings clearly…Home Depot parking lot, in the band van, and I couldn’t wait to hear the song again and again."

Young says she wrote the duet, which you can listen to [url= here]here[/url], with Stump in mind.

She admitted: "When I wrote the duet, I knew that Patrick Stump was the very capable man for the job at hand. Patrick, personally, seemed to embody the role. He embraced the song with focus and optimism."
