Sir Elton John, the “I’m Still Standing” hitmaker and Dua Lipa, the 25-year-old singer-songwriter have joined forces for a new track titled “Cold Heart”, a remix with Australian dance music trio Pnau, which is due to be released this week on Friday, August 13.
The Future Nostalgia star tweeted: “COLD HEART WITH @eltonofficial – I’m so excited!!! (@pnau remix) OUT THIS FRIDAY!!!!!!!! (sic)”
A teaser for the song features 74-year-old Elton singing part of his 1989 hit “Sacrifice”, and Dua belts out a section of the legendary singer’s 1972 song “Rocket Man”.
She sings: “And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time / Til touchdown brings me ’round again to find”.
Elton admitted he and Dua had an “incredible experience” teaming up for the tune.
Elton featured on Dua’s ‘Studio 2054’ live-stream event in November. And last month, he namedropped the likes of Dua and Channel Tres when he admitted that he is inspired by younger artists. The “Tiny Dancer” singer said: “It keeps me animated and it keeps me so happy.”
Dua was “heartbroken” when she was forced to delay her Future Nostalgia tour until 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She was set to hit the road in May 2020, but the concerts were rescheduled for January this year, before being moved again to September and October 2021. They will now take place in the spring of 2022, with some additional dates. The jaunt will kick off next year on April 15 at Manchester’s AO Arena, and culminate in Lisbon, Portugal on June 6, 2022.
