Elton John reached a musical milestone this week when his latest single Cold Heart (PNAU Remix), a collaboration with Dua Lipa and Australian dance music trio PNAU, topped the UK singles charts.

Sir Elton is now the first artist to hit a top ten single in the UK in the past six decades. The song is Elton’s first number one hit in the UK since 2005 when he worked with 2Pac on Ghetto Gospel.

You make me feel infinitely better after my surgery and I can’t wait for you to hear the whole of ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ when it comes out next week! ”

With Cold Heart, number one on the charts Elton John has now overtaken Elvis, Cher, Cliff Richard, Michael Jackson and David Bowie, all of whom have charted at least one top ten single in five different decades.

A mashup of two of the most famous hits by Elton, 1989 Sacrifice and 1972 Rocket Man; Cold Heart is the first single from Elton’s upcoming collaboration album, The Lockdown Sessions.

Originally from Sydney, PNAU have been associated with Elton since 2008 when he first heard their self-titled album and it was called « the greatest record, which he has heard for ten years « .

Since then Elton has been in charge of the group and in 2012 they worked together on the album Good Morning to the Night, which entered the UK album charts at number one. The critically acclaimed album uses samples from some of Elton’s recordings from the early 1970s to create new songs.

Cold Heart overturned Ed Sheeran’s Shivers from number one, a place Sheeran has in the past four weeks had claimed.

Sheeran called on his fans on Instagram October 14th to support Cold Heart, saying: “@eltonjohn is so close to ousting me from UK number 1. It’s going to be his first number one in almost twenty years and I really want to do it. « 

 » Please buy / stream / download Cold Heart now with @dualipa, 15 weeks at number one was more than I ever expected anyway I love you all. Who wouldn’t want to be blown away by Elton anyway, « Sheeran wrote.

Elton’s upcoming album The Lockdown Sessions will be released on October 22nd and will include collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Young Thug, Miley Cyrus, Gorillaz, Brandi Carlile, Stevie Nicks, Lil Nas X, Stevie Wonder and Eddie Vedder.

Elton was due to leave in October in support of his ongoing Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, but announced on September 16 that the stages in the UK and Europe will be postponed to 2023. The postponement was attributed to residual pain as a result of a fall.

“At the end of my summer break, I fell awkwardly on a hard surface and have had considerable pain and discomfort since then s in the hip, « Elton explained in an Instagram post. “Despite intensive physical and specialist treatment, the pain continued to worsen and lead to increasing mobility problems.”

“I was advised to have an operation as soon as possible in order to be fully fit again and to ensure that it there are no long-term complications. I will be doing an intense physical therapy program that will ensure full recovery and a return to full mobility without pain. ”
