Britney Spears and Elton JohnThe “Hold Me Closer” remake of the singer’s “Tiny Dancer” will feature new elements from the OG version, namely that the song will have a “dance vibe”, TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the project tell us that Britney only needed 3 hours to record her verses for the track. We’re told she met the producer Andrew Watt at his home in Beverly Hills, and Elton appeared on Zoom to review the single with Britney – while out of town.
Our sources say Elton only wanted Britney for the remake, and had already recorded her voice, so she could listen and add her parts.
We’re told that after a few mixes, Britney returned to the studio the next day to listen to the finished product…and couldn’t be more excited. The hope is that the song will be released by the end of the month, before the Grammy submission deadline.
Elton revealed the artwork for ‘Hold Me Closer’ on Monday…using a rose and rocket emoji to represent Britney and the Rocket Man himself.
