Britney Spears and Elton John are releasing a new version of the song

According to Page Six, John is gearing up to breathe new life into his song, 50 years after its original release. He’s reportedly recorded a new version of the song with none other than Britney Spears.

“This was Elton’s idea, and Britney is a huge fan,” a source told Page Six. “They have recorded a remix of ‘Tiny Dancer’ as a full duet — and it is incredible.”

“Britney was in the studio in Beverly Hills last week with Elton for the super-secret recording session overseen by uber-producer Andrew Watt,” they added. Watt has produced albums for artists including Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pearl Jam, and Ozzy Osbourne, and won the 2021 Grammy Award for Producer of the Year.

“They’ve already played it for people at their record label, and everybody is freaking out. It is so good,” the source said. “They are saying this is going to be the song of the summer.”

“Britney is officially back,” they concluded. “She’s back to work, and she’s super excited.”

Britney Spears has been enjoying her freedom

For nearly 14 years, Spears was under a conservatorship managed by her father, where nearly all of her personal and financial decisions were made for her. The conservatorship was terminated in November 2021 after a lengthy and public legal battle.

Since the end of the conservatorship, Spears has been speaking openly about her experience during those years and sharing how she feels about her family and those she worked with.

In July 2022, she shared a video on her Instagram of her singing a new, sultrier rendition of her classic hit, “…Baby One More Time.” She wrote in the caption, “I haven’t shared my voice in an extremely long time … maybe too long.” She revealed that she even wanted to record an updated version of the track but wasn’t allowed to.
