In news befitting only for the King and Queen of Pop, Elton John and Britney Spears' collaboration, Hold Me Closer, has topped the the ARIA singles chart, debuting at #1. The track follows John's triumphant 2021 single Cold Heart (PNAU Remix), which took out the top spot on the charts for 10 non-consecutive weeks, and marks his 21st top ten single in Australia.

Bringing together a trio of John's iconic tracks, Tiny Dancer, The One and Don't Go Breaking My Heart, the euphoric remix features production from Andrew Watt and brings the classic tracks into a contemporary sonic realm, Spears breathy and ethereal vocals are perfectly wrapped around John's booming performance, creating a heavenly unity. Proving she's back and better than ever, Spears mesmerising vocal runs take centre stage throughout the song, ushering in a welcomed return for the global superstar.

John will return to Australia early next year, following an extensive 2019 run of shows down under on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour. Kicking off in Newcastle on January 8, the musicians final Australian stadium tour will continue on to Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane, before travelling to New Zealand. Tickets are on sale now!
