This isn't the first time the duo have collaborated, with Coyne recently joining Miley on stage a number of times during her Bangerz tour.

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds was long said to be about drug use, however John Lennon insisted it was inspired by a nursery school drawing by his son Julian.
But in a 2004 interview in Uncut Magazine, Paul McCartney confirmed that the song is indeed about LSD.
'A song like Got to Get You into My Life, that's directly about pot, although everyone missed it at the time,' he said. 'Day Tripper, that's one about acid.
Lucy in the Sky, that's pretty obvious. There's others that make subtle hints about drugs, but, you know, it's easy to overestimate the influence of drugs on the Beatles' music.'
The song was included on their 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which became the biggest selling album of the 1960s.
Miley and Wayne will no doubt be hoping for similar success.
