Jake Shears had only chatted on the phone with Pharrell Williams before they recorded 'Inevitable' for Scissor Sisters' new album.
It wasn't an ideal collaboration scenario for old spangle-chaps who told Metro: "I like to know them and have a rapport with them. I'd only had a phone conversation with Pharrell."
Either way, Jake seemed pretty pleased with the fruits of their rapport-less labour. "We wrote one of our best songs ever," Jake notes. "Whatever it was, it worked."
