Downton's Michelle Dockery & Elizabeth McGovern recording together

Downton Abbey's mother and daughter are teaming up to record an album for release later this year. This information was released in January. I don't know how I missed it. I love Michelle's voice and know that Elizabeth's band is quite a hit. I can't wait to hear them together.

Dockery, 30, is recording an album of songs with Elizabeth McGovern, 50, who plays her mother, the Countess of Grantham, in ITV’s popular period drama.
“It’s going to come out later in the year,” McGovern tells Mandrake at a private screening of the film My Week With Marilyn, hosted by Colin Firth at the Covent Garden Hotel. Dockery says: “It’s been so much fun. Elizabeth is a great songwriter.”
The Essex-born actress performed a memorable on-screen duet with Crawley, played by Dan Stevens, a columnist on The Sunday Telegraph’s Seven magazine. Away from the cameras, Dockery, who lives with her boyfriend, an architect, in fashionable Clerkenwell, prefers to sing jazz and has performed live with McGovern’s band, Sadie and the Hotheads.
