Britney Spears is back on the music scene.
The icon, 40, took to Twitter Wednesday to share that she is releasing her first new song in six years with “one of the most classic men of our time,” Elton John, 75.
“Okie dokie… my first song in 6 years,” she began. “It’s pretty damn cool that I’m singing with one of the most classic men of our time … Elton John !!!! I’m kinda overwhelmed… it’s a big deal to me !!! I’m meditating more and learning my space is valuable and precious!!!”
John gave fans a preview of his new track with the pop star Tuesday. The song, “Hold Me Closer,” is a new rendition of John’s classic 1971 tune “Tiny Dancer.” It will be Spears’ first new release since her 2016 studio album “Glory.”
