Britney Spears Unveils New Cover Art Of ‘Hold Me Closer’ With Elton John

Britney Spears shared a look at the new cover which saw both her and Elton John in blue and white sparkly baseball uniforms.

Fans are excited for Britney Spears and Elton John’s upcoming duet. And the singer recently increased their excitement with the latest cover art of the new single, Hold Me Closer. Spears and John were seen side by side for the highly anticipated single Hold Me Closer, which is set to be released on August 26 by Universal Music.

Spears took to her Instagram and shared a look at the new cover which saw both her and Elton in blue and white sparkly baseball uniforms. Each had a baseball bat in their hat as they looked ready to swing. This is the second cover art of the upcoming duet. Last week the Cold Heart singer uploaded the photo onto his main Instagram page to tease the track’s release. The single artwork shows adorable throwback snaps of the two stars as children.

The Queen of Pop is dressed in a pink dance outfit and Elton cheerfully plays the piano. The updated cover artwork included the names of the two singers at the top and the name of the single at the bottom. Britney could be seen posing with a smile on her face as a young girl in an eye-catching pink dance outfit. Her blonde hair was styled with a large pink feather in her locks. The Rocketman singer could be seen sitting at the piano in a black and white photo when he was just a boy.

Previous artwork for the track was recently released, which included only the title of the song followed by a rose and rocket emoji to represent the two singers. For the unversed, Hold Me Closer was recorded as a new take on his 1971 classic hit, Tiny Dancer. The track has added to the fans’ excitement, with the song being Britney’s first single release since the end of her conservatorship in November 2021.

Previously, it was reported by page Six that Britney had joined up with the English singer and composer in Beverly Hills to record the track, which first appeared on his 1971 album Madman Across The Water. Elton appears to be the one who came up with the idea of the collaboration, but it seems to be an ideal soft launch for Britney to reinvigorate her musical career after staying silent in the final years of her now-defunct conservatorship.
