ELTON JOHN × DUA LIPA × PNAU — COLD HEART

Elton John and Dua Lipa have today unveiled their new collaboration “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix).” The track is available now HERE.

A joyous and blissful dance cut, “Cold Heart” sees two of the world’s most celebrated artists come together on record for the first time. The seed of the collaboration was planted after Dua invited Elton for an Instagram live discussing his experiences with Studio 54 ahead of her remix album Club Future Nostalgia. A shared respect and subsequent friendship blossomed which saw Elton appear as a guest on Dua’s record breaking Studio 2054 live stream. Dua subsequently performed at The Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, which raised over $3 million for the Foundation. Driven by the restrictions of lockdown and a renewed passion for collaboration, Elton reached out to Dua to work on new music together remotely.

The results of those sessions certainly live up to the billing. “Cold Heart” is at once instantly recognizable and yet thoroughly contemporary—a modern dance floor filler based on four of Elton’s classic tracks expertly spliced together by Australian electronic band and producers PNAU—“Kiss The Bride” (originally from 1983 album Too Low For Zero), “Rocketman” (from 1972’s Honky Chateau), “Where’s the Shoorah?” (from 1976 double album Blue Moves) and “Sacrifice” (from 1989’s Healing Hands). PNAU previously achieved an acclaimed UK number 1 in 2012 with the Elton Versus PNAU album Good Morning to the Night.

Elton John says: “The last 18 months have been hard, 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. She’s a truly wonderful artist and person, absolutely bursting with creativity and ideas. The energy she brought to ‘Cold Heart’ just blew my mind.”

Dua Lipa says: “Ever since we first ‘met’ online, we totally clicked. Elton is such an inspirational artist and also has the naughtiest sense of humor—a perfect combination. It has been an absolute honor and privilege to collaborate on this track with him. It’s so very special, with some of my very favorite Elton John classic songs combined—I loved being part of such a creative and joyous experience. Can’t wait to hear it everywhere this summer.”

PNAU say: “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, take them into our world, the psychedelic laser 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.”

The single is accompanied by a stunning video created by Hamburg based animator and director Raman Djafari. Watch the video HERE. The video sees animated versions of Elton and Dua stepping into a dynamic and euphoric world before separating as their planets drift apart. A beautifully drawn, wistful and, at times, trippy parallel to the last year and a half in lockdown, the video reaches its moving and joyous climax as the characters are reunited.

After 18 months when many artists have battened down the hatches and waited for the covid clouds to lift, Elton and Dua have continued to push boundaries and defy any expectations. And with the release of ‘Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)’ the world has the perfect optimistic and joyous summer anthem to usher back the good times.

ABOUT ELTON JOHN:

Elton’s career achievements to date are unsurpassed in their breadth and longevity. Elton is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 1 diamond, 40 platinum or multi-platinum, and 23 gold albums, over 50 Top 40 hits, and he has sold more than 300 million records worldwide. He holds the record for the biggest-selling single of all time, “Candle in the Wind 1997,” which sold over 33 million copies. Diamonds, the Ultimate Greatest Hits album, reached the Top 5 of the UK album charts on its release in November 2017, becoming Elton’s 40th UK Top 40 album in the process. This release celebrated 50 years of his songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin. August 2018 saw Elton named as the most successful male solo artist in Billboard Hot 100 chart history, having logged 67 entries, including nine No. 1s and 27 Top 10s. Elton announced the ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour at New York’s Gotham Hall in January 2018.

Encompassing 5 continents, and over 350 dates, this 3-year-long tour started in September 2018 and marks his retirement from touring after more than 50 years on the road. In 2019 it was named Billboard’s Top Rock Tour and Pollstar’s Major Tour Of The Year. To date, Elton has delivered more than 4,000 performances in more than 80 countries since launching his first tour in 1970. 2019 also saw the release of Rocketman and global bestselling autobiography, ME. An epic fantasy musical motion picture of Elton’s life, Rocketman, has been a commercial and critical hit, taking close to $200m at the box office. It has won an Oscar, two Golden Globe Awards and a Critics’ Choice Award and garnered BAFTA nominations. Its soundtrack was also nominated for a GRAMMY Award.

With a catalogue of their own hits and multiple albums behind them, PNAU have enjoyed a powerful renaissance over the past few years, with multi-platinum hits “Go Bang” and “Chameleon” becoming inescapable on the airwaves in their home country of Australia and climbing the Billboard Dance charts in the U.S. 2019 singles “Solid Gold” and “All Of Us,” embedded PNAU as the most cutting edge electronic act to watch on a global scale, finding a loyal fan base amongst the most influential decision makers at BBC Radio 1, triple j and streaming services across the globe.

Elton John – I Can’t Go On Living Without You

I Can’t Go On Living Without You has been unveiled to celebrate the release of Elton John’s Jewel Box, released today via UMe. Multiple GRAMMY winner Mark ‘Spike’ Stent (Shawn Mendes, Selena Gomez, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber) has given the unreleased 1968 mix – one of the many gems of Jewel Box – a 2020 polish in time to celebrate one of the most eagerly awaited releases of the year. Watch Here.

The 1968 original captures the sound of a long-lost swinging London and typified the writing-to-order pop that Elton John and Bernie Taupin had been contracted to Dick James Music to deliver for other artists to cover.

Written and recorded at DJM studios in Central London in Spring 1968, “I Can’t Go On Living Without You” was selected for consideration for the UK’s Eurovision Song Contest entry the following year. Six songs were chosen for the public vote for Lulu to take the winner forward to the competition’s final in Madrid that March. To get to the final six for songwriters of that day was prestigious enough. Another aspiring team – Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber – submitted a song entitled “Try It And See,” which, according to Rice, didn’t even make the final 50. A year or so later, new lyrics were provided, and it became “Herod’s Song” in Jesus Christ Superstar.

“I Can’t Go On Living Without You” was sung by Lulu on her BBC1 primetime show Happening For Lulu on Saturday, February 1, 1969. “Back then, Eurovision wasn’t quite the orgy of embarrassment it is now, but still, it wasn’t like Pink Floyd, and Soft Machine were queuing up to get involved,” Elton wrote in his acclaimed, best selling memoir Me. In fact, he revealed, although credited to Bernie, he had written the lyrics by himself. On the following Monday, the composing team Bill Martin and Phil Coulter (who had written the previous year’s Eurovision entry,  Congratulations) reviewed I Can’t Go On Living Without You, the fourth of the six contenders, in the Daily Express. Martin wrote, “I strained my ears to hear a non-existent melody coupled with a pathetic lyric.” Coulter added, “a very unimaginative title for what is just a dull and uninteresting song.” Elton wrote in his diary on Monday, February 3: “Went into the office. General reaction to Lulu – not very good.”

When the final result came through a fortnight later, the song had come sixth in the audience poll. Out of six. It had received 5087 votes. Ironically, it was beaten into last place by a song called Are You Ready For Love? (but not the one Elton was to take to No. 1 in 2003). The song that Lulu did take forward, “Boom Bang-A-Bang,” garnered 56476 votes.

Although Lulu was to be the joint winner of Eurovision that year, “I Can’t Go On Living Without You” did attract some cover versions; Cilla Black recorded it on her 1970 album, Sweet Inspiration; Pickettywitch singer Polly Brown released it on the flip side of “So In Love” in 1973, and Sandie Shaw’s version belatedly came out in 2004.

Now it’s time to hear the Elton original for the first time. ‘I Can’t Go On Living Without You’ is three fabulous minutes of the zingy easy listening pop of the day, with a catchy chorus and a memorable hook.

The track is accompanied by a new lyric video from Ladybug Studios where, like the track itself, the song’s swingin’ 60s vintage will be given a fresh and contemporary twist. It features images of Elton and Bernie from the period.

Elton: Jewel Box is available now as deluxe 8CD and 9LP box sets, standalone 4LP, 3LP, and 2LP breakouts. On streaming services, we’re celebrating its wealth of rarities, deep cuts, and B-sides via a series of regular three-song batches, culminating with the complete ‘Jewel Box’ appearing, in full, in March for Elton’s 75th birthday.

Purple Disco Machine

The Purple Disco Machine remix of ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ has been unveiled today and is available now at all digital retailers. Listen to the remix HERE.

An Academy Awards shortlisted, Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award nominated song, the original version of ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ was written especially for the ‘Rocketman’ soundtrack by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, and performed by Elton and Taron Egerton. The original version is featured on the GRAMMY nominated Top 5 album ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ (out now on Interscope Records) and played out over the movie’s closing credits. With his remix, Purple Disco Machine gracefully transforms ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ into a joyous, slinky disco groove, keeping Elton and Taron’s show-stopping vocals and the track’s Motown inspired soul at its core.

Epic musical fantasy ‘Rocketman’ was greeted by a wealth of critical and commercial success upon its release in May and shows no sign of slowing down as it heads into awards season. Having already taken more than $195 million in global box office, it has been shortlisted for two Academy Awards for Makeup and Hairstyling, and Music (Original Song). Rocketman has also been nominated for three Golden Globe Awards for Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), Best Original Song and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy). It has also garnered nominations for three Critics’ Choice Awards and its soundtrack has also been nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media.

Elton says “Bernie and I wanted to celebrate the nominations for “I’m Gonna Love Me Again”.  I’m so happy that Purple Disco Machine was able to come to the party with a fabulous new remix. I’m a massive fan of his work.”

The release caps off a year which has been truly astonishing in its breadth of achievements, even by Elton John’s standards. Alongside Rocketman’s ongoing success, 2019 has seen the release of Elton’s first autobiography ‘Me’. It has already amassed global sales in excess of 700,000 copies to date, topping bestseller charts around the world in the process and garnering widespread acclaim with critics heralding it as a genre-defining rock memoir. Reaching the top 5 of the UK Charts, the GRAMMY® nominated album ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ saw producer Giles Martin reimagine Elton’s unparalleled back catalogue to fit Rocketman’s narrative, working with the filmmakers on the production and pulling a vocal masterclass from Taron in the studio. September 2019 saw The Royal Mail issue a set of 12 stamps as a tribute to Elton being one of the most popular and enduring music artists of all time. Elton is one of only two individual music artists to be featured in a dedicated stamp issue. In June 2019 President Emmanuel Macron presented Elton the Légion d’honneur, France’s highest award, for his lifetime contribution to the arts and the fight against HIV/AIDS. Elton’s ongoing Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour was named Billboard’s Top Rock Tour in May 2019, the accolade coming a year after Billboard named Elton as the most successful male solo artist in Billboard Hot 100 chart history.

ROCKETMAN “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again”

The video for ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’, a brand-new song written especially for ROCKETMAN by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, and performed by Elton and Taron Egerton, has today been unveiled. The glorious visuals give a vivid snapshot into Elton’s career, taking shots of Taron in the epic musical fantasy ROCKETMAN, intercut with archive live footage, 70’s psychedelic animation, iconic album artwork and gig posters to transport you back to his hedonistic heyday. Directed by Los Angeles artist Kii Arens, the video is a perfect accompaniment to the gloriously uptempo, soulful stomper of a track, which plays over the movie’s credits. The video premiered today on MTVU and MTV Live and can be seen throughout the day. Watch the clip here.

The song is taken from ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ (out now on Interscope Records), which sees celebrated producer and composer Giles Martin re-interpreting and re-imagining Elton’s iconic hits, tailoring the music specifically to support the narrative of the major motion picture, with a truly show stopping vocal performance from ROCKETMAN lead actor Taron Egerton. ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ is co-produced by Giles Martin and Greg Kurstin. ‘Rocketman: Music From The Motion Picture’ is available now.

From transforming ‘Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’ into an epic ensemble piece, to morphing ‘I Want Love’ into a heart-breaking moment of conflict around little Reggie’s family meal, each track has been sculpted to form a unique part of the narrative of this most incredible of stories. The album is produced by Giles Martin (except ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ co-produced by Giles Martin and Greg Kurstin) and was recorded between 2017 and 2019 at Abbey Road Studios and AIR Studios in London.

ROCKETMAN: Music From The Motion Picture

Interscope Records will release ROCKETMAN: Music From The Motion Picture. The set sees celebrated producer and composer Giles Martin re-interpreting and re-imagining Elton John’s iconic hits, tailoring the music specifically to support the narrative of Paramount Pictures’ upcoming major motion picture, ROCKETMAN, with a truly show stopping vocal performance from lead actor Taron Egerton.   The first track from the album, “Rocket Man,” was Zane Lowe’s World Record today on Apple Music’s Beats 1. Fans can pre-order ROCKETMAN: Music From The Motion Picture now and receive “Rocket Man” instantly.  The video for “Rocket Man” premiered today on Good Morning America.  Watch the video HERE.

Elton John says: “It was so important that the music I composed and recorded had to be sung by Taron. I wanted his interpretation of me, through Bernie’s lyrics & my music – not just acting. I left Taron in the hands of Giles Martin, who I trusted implicitly because he’s brilliant. I didn’t want to be in Taron’s shadows, watching over the process, I trusted them to do what they needed to do, artistically, and listening back I’ve been astonished with the results. Getting the music right was the most important thing, as the songs in the film are integral to the story.”

“The beauty of having Elton involved with the film is we’ve been able to work with him to see how far we can take these classic songs” says Taron Egerton. “Giles Martin has impeccable taste and massive skills to bring the songs to a place where they are faithful and daring as well.”

 

“The great thing about Elton is that he is a true artist and he wants people to expand on his work – he wants interpretations done, it’s refreshing for him, says Giles Martin.  “We had scope to play around with things and think how we address the songs. The songs are the story of the movie, the heartbeat of what happens. Once the songs start a whole world opens up. In Taron I’ve never known a singer who dedicates himself so much to the process. I don’t think anyone else could have played Elton.”

Tasked with taking Elton’s unparalleled back catalogue and reimagining it to fit the film’s narrative, soundtrack producer Martin worked closely with the filmmakers, supervising all the music for the production and pulling a vocal masterclass from Egerton in the studio. From transforming Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’ into an epic ensemble piece, to morphing ‘I Want Love’ into a heart-breaking moment of conflict around little Reggie’s family meal, each track has been sculpted to form a unique part of the narrative of this most incredible of stories. The soundtrack also contains a brand-new Elton John and Bernie Taupincomposition ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ performed by Elton and Taron Egerton. ROCKETMAN: Music From The Motion Picture is produced by Giles Martin (except “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” is co-produced by Giles Martin and Greg Kurstin)and was recorded between 2017 and 2019 at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios.
