Elton John has released “Finish Line” — his new collaboration with Steve Wonder. The song is a taster from Elton’s new Lockdown Sessions album coming on October 22nd. The set also features Stevie Nicks, Eddie Vedder, Miley Cyrus, Dua Lipa, and others.
Elton said of the Stevie team-up in a press release:
Stevie’s voice is as good as I can ever remember hearing him — he sounds like a 17-year-old again. He’s singing with a sheer joy and exuberance in his vocals. It was a magical process. I’ve always loved collaborating with Stevie, and I’m delighted that after (50) years of friendship, we finally get to do a full-blown duet. He has always been so kind and sweet to me, and his talent is beyond ridiculous. When you listen to what he does vocally and instrumentally on ‘Finish Line,’ you think, this is a true genius here.”
