Dua Lipa & Elton John Team Up For ‘Cold Heart’, A Medley Perfected By PNAU

Elton John and Dua Lipa have teamed up to deliver this delectable dance track this morning. ‘Cold Heart’ is a mashup of four Elton John classics, masterfully produced by PNAU.

The song includes ‘Kiss The Bride’ from Too Low For Zero, ‘Where’s the Shoorah?’ from Blue Moves, ‘Sacrifice’ from Healing Hands, and ‘Rocketman’ from Honky Chateau.

Dua Lipa takes care of that famous ‘Rocketman’ chorus, which is an absolute treat.

The collab came about after Dua Lipa invited Elton John on an Instagram Live. She asked him about his experiences with Studio 54 ahead of the release of Club Future Nostalgia, her remix album.

A friendship blossomed, with John appearing on Dua’s Studio 2054 livestream. Dua then performed at The Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

Elton later asked Dua if she’d like to collaborate remotely, due to lockdown restrictions.

Now, we have ‘Cold Heart’ and how bloody good.

“The last 18 months have been hard,” says Elton. “But being off the road has meant that I’ve actually had time to get back to my roots as a session player and collaborate with some wonderful artists.

“And having the opportunity to spend time with Dua, albeit remotely has been incredible.

“She’s given me so much energy. The energy she brought to ‘Cold Heart’ just blew my mind.”

While Dua says, “Ever since we first “met” online, we totally clicked.

“Elton is such an inspirational artist and also has the naughtiest sense of humour – a perfect combination.

“It has been an absolute honour and privilege to collaborate on this track with him.

“It’s so very special, with some of my very favourite Elton John classic songs combined – I loved being part of such a creative and joyous experience.”

“Setting a stage for the two greatest performers in the world today Sir Elton John and Dua Lipa, we knew we had to go in deep,” says PNAU.

“Take them into our world, the psychedelic lazer black lit club.

“Where all of us can meet on the dance floor, forget the outside and lose ourselves in the healing waters of music and love eternal.”
