Elton John, Britney Spears Confirm Duet ‘Hold Me Closer’

After last month’s reports that Britney Spears and Elton John have recorded a new version of “Tiny Dancer,” representatives for both artists have confirmed the news.

Reps for both artists sent a statement on Monday, August 8, confirming “Hold Me Closer” was coming soon with a pre-save link and artwork.

John shared picture on social media of the new song title, “Hold Me Closer,” against a pink backdrop along with a rocket and a rose emoji. The rocket referring to the “Rocketman” himself and the rose as a tribute to Spears.

According to last month’s report, Britney met with Elton at a Beverly Hills recording studio to cut a new take on his 1971 classic. Britney and Elton reportedly recorded the song with support from Grammy-winning super producer Andrew Watt.

The song would mark Spears’ first official release since her 13-year conservatorship ended last year.

Elton co-wrote “Tiny Dancer” with Bernie Toupin. The song was part of his 1971 album, Madman Across the Water.
