Elton John and Dua Lipa have teamed up for the new collaboration ‘Cold Heart’, which is remixed by the Australian producer trio PNAU. The track sees the two artists singing and trading some verses over a mash-up of John’s ’80s track ‘Sacrifice’ and his classic ‘Rocket Man (I Think It’s Going To Be A Long, Long Time)’. Check out its accompanying visual below.
“The last 18 months have been hard, but being off the road has meant that I’ve actually had time to get back to my roots as a session player and collaborate with some wonderful artists,” John said in a press statement. “And having the opportunity to spend time with Dua, albeit remotely has been incredible. She’s given me so much energy. She’s a truly wonderful artist, and person, absolutely bursting with creativity and ideas. The energy she brought to ‘Cold Heart’ just blew my mind.”
“Ever since we first ‘met’ online, we totally clicked,” Lipa commented. “Elton is such an inspirational artist and also has the naughtiest sense of humour – a perfect combination. It has been an absolute honour and privilege to collaborate on this track with him. It’s so very special, with some of my very favourite Elton John classic songs combined – I loved being part of such a creative and joyous experience. Can’t wait to hear it everywhere this summer.”
PNAU added: “Setting a stage for the two greatest performers in the world today Sir Elton John and Dua Lipa, we knew we had to go in deep, take them into our world, the psychedelic laser black lit club. Where all of us can meet on the dance floor, forget the outside and lose ourselves in the healing waters of music and love eternal.”
