“Cold Heart” is a new collaborative track he developed with pop artist Dua Lipa. The track remixes two of John’s popular ballads – “Rocket Man” from 1972 and “Sacrifice” from 1989 – while adding a catchy rhythm.
“During the lockdown, I did this single,” John told the audience from the DJ booth as the DJ got ready to spin it. “He dated Dua Lipa yesterday,” John continued, “so, I want you all to dance on your table and wave your hands and handkerchiefs.”
The crowd, fortunately, did not follow his suggestion to stand on the tables. However, many stood in their chairs and began to smile, sway, clap, and record as he sang into rose-tinted glasses.
Although the song was only about four minutes long, it’s evident in her six-minute Instagram video that her performance left a lasting impression. Diners cheered, smiled and lined up to catch a glimpse of the accomplished singer as a bodyguard ushered him out of the restaurant afterwards.
“Cold Heart” isn’t the first time John has teamed up with Dua Lipa. In April, they raised over $ 2.7 million for her AIDS foundation at a virtual pre-show event for her Oscar after-party.
Video for the song was released last Friday. It features animated versions of the two artists in a groovy spatial setting filled with glitter, fish, stars, and blooming flowers.
