Hold Me Closer
Elton John surprises with a new song in Cannes
Elton John didn’t come to dinner empty-handed. The pop superstar had a new song in his luggage – and the crowd in the trendy restaurant on the Côte d’Azur was very enthusiastic.
The British pop star Elton-John presented his new song, which also features US pop singer Britney Spears, at a surprise performance on Tuesday at the French Riviera in Cannes.
As the newspaper “Nice-Matin” reported, the superstar appeared in the trendy restaurant La Guérite on the Cannes situated island of Sainte Marguerite. The British superstar grabbed the mic at the celebrity-popular restaurant and sang his new song ‘Hold Me Closer’, a remake of his 1971 track ‘Tiny Dancer’, video the newspaper showed.
“Britney Spears“Elton John, let’s go,” the singer called at the start of his unannounced short concert and performed the new title in front of an enthusiastic crowd. “Thank you, it’ll be out on Friday,” Elton John said at the end.
The cooperation with the British superstar would be a musical comeback for Britney Spears, it had already been said in media reports. The singer has been under guardianship since 2008 after she collapsed mentally due to personal and professional problems. In September last year, a judge finally relieved the father of his guardianship. In November, the singer regained full control of her life.
