Ahead of The Lockdown Sessions release next month, Sir Elton John has just dropped the third single off the upcoming album - and we are loving it!

Over 35 years after their 1985 charity single 'That's What Friends Are For,' Elton John and Stevie Wonder have finally teamed up for their first ever duet, 'Finish Line.'

The music legends — who also previously collaborated on 'I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues' — also recruited the Sunday Service choir for the soulful gospel track.

"I couldn't be more proud of 'Finish Line' — I'd go as far as to say it's one of the best records I've ever made,' John said about the song.

He added: "Stevie's voice is as good as I can ever remember hearing him — he sounds like a 17-year-old again, he’s singing with a sheer joy and exuberance in his vocals … It was a magical process.

"I've always loved collaborating with Stevie, and I'm delighted that after fifty years of friendship we finally get to do a full-blown duet."

Recorded over the last 18 months, John's upcoming 32nd studio record came together after he was forced to pause his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour due to the global pandemic.
