Original version taken from John’s upcoming The Lockdown Sessions
Elton John and Dua Lipa have unveiled The Blessed Madonna’s Remix of “Cold Heart” with Dua Lipa. The Blessed Madonna first came to John’s attention as a consistently uncompromising voice with the electronic music community, remixing a wealth of his favorite artists. Her music has become a regular fixture on John’s Apple Music Rocket Hour show and she has been high on his wish list of collaborators since. The Blessed Madonna is also no stranger to Dua Lipa, having co-curated Dua’s Club Future Nostalgia album and remixed her global hit “Levitating.” It’s a combination that’s a completely natural fit and has been a long, long time in coming.
Already growing into a bonafide international hit record in its own right, the original album version of “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” is taken from John’s eagerly anticipated The Lockdown Sessions. The 16-track album of collaborations recorded remotely over the last 18 months will be released on October 22nd via Interscope Records.
“Like just about everyone on the planet, I stand in awe of Elton John and Dua Lipa,” The Blessed Madonna shares. “It was such an enormous honor to be asked to be a part of their collaboration which is such a beautiful project. I immediately loved the song and I tried very hard to do it justice. It is nothing but pure joy to be in the orbit of these icons and their great big, warm beautiful hearts. I appreciate all of you listening ❤️”
The Blessed Madonna remix of “Cold Heart” is accompanied by a bespoke visualiser – with motion graphics artist James Stevens remixing the stunning official video for “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” created by Hamburg based animator and director Raman Djafari. A beautifully animated, trippy journey, the visuals form a fabulous counterpart to the video for the original song.
Also, tickets for the London date of John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road – The Final Tour go on general sale to the public. BST Hyde Park will host this historic show on Friday, June 24, 2022.
