Britney Spears is back. Spears teamed up with Elton John for a new single ‘Hold Me Closer’, making it her first music release since her 13-year conservatorship was terminated late last year. The new song, which begins with a verse from John’s “The One,” is an upbeat take on his 1971 classic “Tiny Dancer”.
On Wednesday, Spears described the new studio recording on Twitter as “my first song in 6 years.” (The singles she released in 2020 were recorded around the time of her 2016 album “Glory.”)
“I am absolutely thrilled to have had the chance to work with Britney Spears,” Elton John said in a press release. “She truly is an icon, one of the all-time great pop stars and she sounds amazing on this record. I love her dearly and am delighted with what we’ve created together.”
