Danny and Sandy are back together!

For the first time in years, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have reunited. The reason? The Grease costars are collaborating on This Christmas, a holiday album benefitting two charities close to their hearts.

Equal portions of the album's proceeds will go to the Jett Travolta Foundation, an organization named after Travolta's late son Jett seeking to combat children's disabilities including autism and seizures, and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia. 

One of the album's highlights is a new, original song titled "I Think You Might Like It," the sequel to Travolta and Newton-John's Grease hit, "You're the One That I Want."

Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, James Taylor, Chick Corea and Kenny G will also be featured on the holiday album.

Travolta said in a statement he wanted "to make This Christmas an intimate album, not something too ostentatious or showy."

"I wanted people to be able to play it around the house or in the car during the holiday, and make us part of your celebration," he added. "Gathering around the house listening to Christmas music has always been an important part of that time of year to my family."

This Christmas is available Nov. 13, but if you're really in the holiday spirit, you can pre-order it on Amazon now.
