Elton John has joined forces with Dua Lipa for a new track titled ‘Cold Heart’ and it is set for release on Friday (August 13).

Elton and Dua’s collaboration is a remix from dance trio Pnau, a group who have been mentored by Elton.

Pnau is made up of Nick Littlemore, Peter Mayes and Sam Littlemore. They previously worked with Elton on Good Morning to the Night in 2012. The album was a collection of songs that were made by mixing samples of some of Elton’s earlier music. The album debuted at number one on the UK album chart.
