Is Britney Spears returning to music? After roughly six years since she last released new material, the pop star is said to be back in a recording studio to meet singer Elton John and create their new take on his song “Tiny Dancer.”
Spears secretly met John at a recording studio in Beverly Hills, Calif., last week to do their new take on the 1970s song, according to an exclusive report by page 6 yesterday July 25.
“It was Elton’s idea, and Britney is a huge fan. They recorded a full duet remix of ‘Tiny Dancer’ – and it’s amazing,” a music industry insider told the report.
The insider added that Spears and John had a “super secret recording session” with music producer Andrew Watt, who has worked with Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pearl Jam and Ozzy Osbourne.
Spears and John’s new track is set to be released under Universal Music next month. So far it has only been played to people from the record company. The insider described it as “so good” and “the song of the summer.”
“Britney is officially back. She’s back at work and she’s super excited,” the insider said.
If the collaboration does materialize, it would mark Spears’ first return to music since her conservatorship ended in November last year. It will also be her first music to be released since her 2016 album “Glory,” which included her single “Slumber Party.”
Since the end of her conservatorship, Spears has married model Sam Asghari and has hinted that she is ready to return to work.
Last February, she show herself in a dance studio and said “it’s a taste of what’s to come”. Her too checked in herself earlier this month singing her 1998 hit “…Baby One More Time” while declaring, “I haven’t shared my voice in an awfully long time…maybe too long.”
Meanwhile, “Tiny Dancer” was co-written by John and songwriter Bernie Taupin. It was originally released under John’s album “Madman across the Water”. /ra
