“I’m really happy for Britney, especially because having her on this record is such a gas, to begin with,” John said in a Sept. 1 interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “But she’s someone who’s been through hell, who needed love in her life, lots of love from lots of people, and she’s getting it.
“She did it so well and so easily,” the music icon continued of their collaboration. “And I’m sure a lot of people thought, ‘Well, can she still sing? Well, I knew to begin with that she could sing because if you go back and look at the old footage, she was the greatest artist in the world and she could sing, she could dance, she could do anything. So I wasn’t worried about that. What worried me was if she would be so nervous because she hadn’t done it in a while, but she pulled it off with flying colors.
“Hold Me Closer”, which is a new version of John’s 1972 classic “Tiny Dancer” produced by Grammy winner Andrew Watt, features John and Spears singing the opening verse of John’s 1992 hit. , “The One” to a club-ready beat, before diving into the chorus of 1971’s “Tiny Dancer.”
‘Hold Me Closer’ is Spears’ first new music since her 2016 studio album Glorywhich also included deluxe tracks “Mood Ring,” “Swimming in the Stars,” and the Backstreet Boys-assisted “Matches” that were released in 2020.
