Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley has recorded a duet with Barbra Streisand that will appear on the legendary singer's new album.

Ridley's Star Wars director JJ Abrams previously revealed that the 23-year-old star possesses "the most beautiful voice" and would be recording with a "massive superstar" in the near future.

The actress remained tight-lipped about the collaboration, saying only that it involved "a legendary awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping superstar".

Sharing a photo of herself in a recording studio with Streisand to her Instagram account, Ridley revealed the identity of her mystery singing partner.

Ridley, who has recently shared pictures from her experience at her first ever Oscars, captioned the photo: "I'm gonna end this spate of pictures detailing my insane weekend with this... Ummmmmmmmmmmm..."

Details of the song they recorded together have not yet been released, but Ridley is not the first star to join Streisand in the studio lately. 
Jamie Foxx and Streisand recorded a version of The Sound of Music track Climb Every Mountain in February, and it is thought her upcoming album will follow on from her last release, Partners, which featured Streisand recording covers of classic tracks with the likes of Michael Bublé, Stevie Wonder and John Legend.
