Britney Spears to make long-awaited return to music with single with Elton John

Britney Spears, 40, is set to return to the music scene in a collaboration with Sir Elton John.

Details of the project are limited but the new track is called Hold Me Closer, a spokesman confirmed to the PA news agency.

It had been previously speculated that the pair were working on a new version of Sir Elton’s 1971 hit Tiny Dancer.

Sir Elton confirmed the exciting news as he shared an image to his Instagram of a rose and rocket emoji with the words “hold me closer” on Monday.

More information is due to be shared in the coming week, the spokesman added.

Rumours of the high-profile collaboration were reported last month by US media outlets, although it wasn't confirmed until now.

Britney hasn't released an official single since Slumber party in 2016. She met her now-husband Sam Asghari on the video shoot for the single.

Fans went wild after the news of her return to music was confirmed, as one person commented: "Yesss give us the Britney collab!!"

Another said: "ELTON & BRITNEY!! 2 LEGENDS ON 1 SONG!! WE’RE READY!! WE NEED TO GET IT TO NUMBER ONE!!"

An excited third fan wrote: "OH MY GOD QUEEN BRITNEY IS BACK."

It comes as the Toxic singer continues her legal battle with her father Jamie Spears over his alleged misconduct during her 13-year conservatorship.

Last month a US judge denied a motion by Mr Spears that the pop star should return to court to face further questioning over the controversial legal arrangement, which ended in November last year.

Judge Brenda Penny previously ordered that Mr Spears himself be deposed and face questions about alleged surveillance of the singer at her home.
