track 01 / 17
Elton John & Dua Lipa
I'd worked with PNAU before on the 'Good Morning to the Night: Elton vs PNAU' album, which went to number 1 in the UK and I really wanted to work with them again. Cold Heart was the first track they sent me and I absolutely loved it but felt like I wanted to bring in a different voice to sing the 'Rocket Man' part. Dua and I met virtually when she interviewed me on Instagram Live for her Studio 2054. I’d been a fan of her music and keeping an eye on her career and loved talking to her so much I asked if she would perform at our Oscars party for the Aids Foundation. She couldn't have been more professional or fantastic and we became good friends, and I knew she had the right sound for the track. I was delighted when she agreed to be on it and I'm so proud of how well the track has done and that people have loved listening to it.
