Sir Elton John teams up with huge US music legend for brand new song

Sir Elton John teams up with huge US music legend for brand new song

BETWEEN them they have sold more than 400million records, won 17 Grammys and released over 80 albums.

Now Elton John and Dolly Parton have teamed up for the first time for a major superstar collaboration.

I’ve learned that the veteran British performer has worked with her on a song which is expected to come out later this year.

He excitedly told guests about it at his Elton John Aids Foundation Oscars viewing party last weekend, where he raised more than £7.5million for the charity.

A source said: “Elton is a massive fan of Dolly — she is a gay icon, after all.

“He heard that she wanted to work with him and leapt at the chance.

“Elton loves collaborating and who better to do so with than a bona fide music legend?”

They are believed to have worked together on a version of Elton’s 1974 single Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me, after Dolly told in December how she wanted to duet with him on it.

She said at the time: “I’ve sent out a message asking if he would sing with me on it and possibly play the piano.

“So if y’all get to see him, say, ‘Dolly wants you to sing on her record!’”

Dolly is currently putting together a rock album, on which the collaboration with Elton is set to feature on. The collection will be out later this year.

She has teamed up with ­Journey’s Steve Parry to cover the group’s song Open Arms and previously said she also wanted to work with ­Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler as well as Jimmy Page and ­Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin for the project.

It is also due to feature covers of Prince’s Purple Rain, the Rolling Stones’ (I can’t Get No) Satisfaction and Led Zep’s Stairway To Heaven.

Somehow, I doubt she will be getting booked for rock events like Reading and Leeds Festival, though.
