Elton John is reportedly set to release a new version of his classic song “Tiny Dancer” featuring pop star Britney Spears.
According page 6the two singers recently teamed up in the studio for a “super secret recording session” alongside producer Andrew Watt.
“It was Elton’s idea, and Britney is a huge fan,” an unnamed source noted. “They’ve recorded a full duet remix of ‘Tiny Dancer’ – and it’s amazing.”
“They’ve already played it for people at their record company, and everyone’s freaking out. It’s so good,” the source continued. “They say it’s going to be the song of the summer.”
Neither artist has yet commented on the rumors, although page 6 noted that the new version of “Tiny Dancer” could be released as early as next month. The original, released in 1971, ranks among John’s most iconic tracks.
If the reported song really comes to fruition, it will mark Spears’ first new music since 2016. The pop star has made headlines in recent years due to her battle to be freed from a legal guardianship, held by her father, which was finally lifted in November 2021.
John, meanwhile, is no stranger to working alongside pop stars. The acclaimed rocker recently scored worldwide success with “Cold Heart,” a collaboration with singer Dua Lipa and electronic trio Pnau. The song reached the Top 10 in over 30 countries, including the UK where it became John’s first number 1 in 16 years.
The legendary singer is currently in the middle of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, with dates in the United States scheduled through November.
