Just two weeks after Lady Gaga and Elton John released their highly-anticipated official duet 'Sine From Above,' the Rocketman is back with another new track!

This time, the 73-year-old has teamed up with an American duo called Surfaces for the single, 'Learn To Fly' - and it is the bit optimism the world needs right now.

Taking to Instagram, the duo wrote: "From the bottom of our hearts we hope this song will be a source of encouragement now more than ever."

They continued: "If you are broken, hurting, lost, or just going through it ... this one's for you."

Meanwhile, Elton also took to Instagram to explain how the song came about.

"I heard their song 'Sunday Best' for the first time in Australia and liked it so much. Then @surfacesmusic reached out to me to ask if I would sing and play some piano on their new track, 'Learn to Fly.'

"I loved the song and the production, so couldn't say no!" he wrote alongside a picture of the trio on Zoom.

"It was a unique experience to collaborate remotely over Zoom but these guys are terrific and we had a blast. The track is out this Friday and I can’t wait for you to hear it."
