The 40-year-old met Elton John in Beverly Hills to record a new remix of his iconic 1971 hit 'Tiny Dancer!'

And now the Rocket Man has shared a teaser clip of the upcoming duet, titled 'Hold Me Closer!'

Posting the artwork and the 14-second snippet on TikTok, Sir Elton wrote: "#HoldMeCloser with @britneyspears. Coming August 26," with a rose and rocket emoji, representing Britney and Sir Elton respectively.

The single will drop on August 26 and will mark Spears' return to music and her first release since 2016, following the end of her 13-year-long conservatorship in November 2021.

Elton has seen big success this year with re-recorded duets of his past hits. He and Dua Lipa scored a hit with 'Cold, Cold Heart,' a mashup of his hits 'Rocket Man' and 'Sacrifice.'

'Tiny Dancer' was written by John and Bernie Taupin. It was originally released on John's 1971 album, Madman Across the Water, and then as a single in 1972.

It was ranked at number 47 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2021.
