Dua Lipa and Elton John have teamed up for a new collaboration dance track of our dreams called “Cold Heart (Pnau Remix).”
The Pnau produced track, features ingredients from a number of John's iconic songs, including “Rocket Man,” “Sacrifice,” and "Kiss the Bride”- that sprinkled in with a heavy dose of Dua, and it’s accompanying Raman Djafari illustrated music video has lead us into a psychedelic disco fever dream.
Both Dua and Elton took to social media to promote the song prior to it’s release. Sharing the single’s cover art on IG, John wrote, “I am so excited to finally be able to tell you all that I have a new single with Dua Lipa… I adore you, and it has been an incredible experience making this together. I can’t wait for you all to hear it!” To which Dua responded: “I love you!!!! I’m so excited ❤️❤️❤️❤️”
“Ever since we first ‘met’ online, we totally clicked. Elton is such an inspirational artist and also has the naughtiest sense of humor—a perfect combination,” Dua said of the five-time GRAMMY-winner in the song's official press release. “It has been an absolute honor and privilege to collaborate on this track with him. It’s so very special, with some of my very favorite Elton John classic songs combined—I loved being part of such a creative and joyous experience.”
Returning the kind words, Elton stated, “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. … [Dua is] a truly wonderful artist, and person, absolutely bursting with creativity and ideas. The energy she brought to ‘Cold Heart’ just blew my mind.”
This project is just latest collaboration from the two as the pair previously teamed up earlier this year for Elton’s annual Oscars party to sing “Bennie And The Jets” and “Love Again.” Additionally, John also took part in last year’s Studio 2054 livestream, and after bopping to “Cold Heart” we’re very happy they decided to team up at least once more.
