Legendary American musician Meat Loaf has released a special digital EP entitled If I Can’t Have You, featuring a rollicking version of title-track “If I Can’t Have You” and two brand-new bonus tracks.

“If I Can’t Have You” is a duet with former American Idol judge and world renowned songwriter Kara DioGuardi, and also features House star Hugh Laurie on piano.  Besides the powerful duet, the EP also features a live version of the Rocky Horror Picture Show classic “Hot Patootie Bless My Soul” from Meat Loaf’s successful Hang Cool Teddy Bear Summer tour.  The third song on this release is “Don’t Get Me Goin,” a Hang Cool Teddy Bear studio B-side. 

In other exciting Meat Loaf news, he recently appeared as a Rocky Horror Picture Show-hating newsman (alongside original Rocky alum Barry Bostwick) on Fox’s hit show Glee.  The episode “The Rocky Horror Glee Show” featured the Glee cast reimagining the original film, with multi-talented actor John Stamos performing Meat Loaf’s signature number, “Hot Patootie Bless My Soul.”  Did you miss the episode?  Watch it HERE and see if you can spot Meat Loaf!
