Rina Sawayama has teamed up with Elton John for a new single.
‘Chosen Family (Ft. Elton John)’ is set for release at 5pm on Wednesday 14th April on Zane Lowe’s BEATS1 show, with a video following at 6pm.
“It was such a joy and honour to rework ‘Chosen Family’ with the legendary Elton John,” says Rina. “The song means so much to both of us, and recording it together was such a special experience I will never forget. I got shivers when I heard his voice through the monitor and became emotional when he added the piano parts. Elton has been such a huge supporter from before the album, and when we finally met to record this song we clicked from the get go. I hope people can hear the magic!”
The original track features on Rina’s recent debut album ‘SAWAYAMA’, which she’ll support with a UK headline tour later this year.
