Elton John scored his biggest hit in years by teaming up with Dua Lipa for "Cold Heart," a reworking of four of his old songs. Now, it appears the rumors are true: he's done something similar with Britney Spears.

John and Spears haven't shared many details on the buzzworthy upcoming collaboration, but Page Six recently reported that Britney and Elton had teamed up for a remix of Elton's 1972 hit "Tiny Dancer."

The track is called "Hold Me Closer," which is the first line of the chorus of "Tiny Dancer."

Similarly, "Cold Heart" took its title from a line in "Sacrifice," one of John's four hits that were mashed up by the Australian dance trio PNAU to create the Dua hit.

Spears' pal Paris Hilton recently said she'd heard the track and pronounced it "insane."

The track is now available to presave.

Spears' last studio album was the 2016 project "Glory." In 2020, she released three bonus tracks that she'd originally recorded for "Glory," but they weren't official singles.
