Britney Spears releases 'Hold Me Closer,' with Elton John

Britney Spears is back with her very first new track since the end of her controversial conservatorship and teaming up with Elton John on his 1972 hit “Tiny Dancer,” it has now been reworked into a dance anthem titled “Hold Me Closer.”



Speaking to the Guardian about revitalizing his classics with mashups and collaborating with new artists, John said, “I want to do one every year for a fun, happy summer record.”


Speaking about working with Spears on her first release in such a long time, and probably the first in a very long time where she actually had artistic freedom, John said, “I’m so excited to be able to do it with her because if it is a big hit, and I think it may be, it will give her so much more confidence than she’s got already, and she will realise that people actually love her and care for her and want her to be happy. That’s all anybody in their right mind would want after she went through such a traumatic time.”
