Elton John and Britney Spears have released the video for their collaboration, “Hold Me Closer,” a dance track that offers a contemporary twist on his “Tiny Dancer” with elements of “The One” and “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” sprinkled in.
The vibrant clip was shot in Mexico City and shows a handful of people dancing. Director Tanu Muino, who has done videos for Lil Nas X, Harry Styles, Cardi B, Yungblud and Lizzo, says, “The visuals had to be different. The dance had to be forward-thinking to raise eyebrows and make Elton and Britney proud. To capture this magic, we shot around all my favorite architectural locations in Mexico City… Getting the best dancers, crew and access to some of the most private locations in the world was simple as everyone wanted to work with Elton John and be part of his legacy.”
With the video comes the details of three collectible, limited-edition CD single formats — each with different artwork: one with the original single sleeve and the remaining two with fan-voted art as the cover. Additionally, each CD will carry a different track list, all with the original version of the song with the second track varying between an extended version or a remix. They’ll be out in November.
