US pop singer Britney Spears is back in the studio recording music for the first time in six years.
Multiple outlets reported Spears is collaborating with Elton John on a brand-new recording of his 1971 song “Tiny Dancer”, which took on a new life after it was reintroduced in Cameron Crowe’s 2000 movie “Almost Famous”.
The duo met last week in a Beverly Hills recording studio for a new version of the track, which is set to be released by Universal Music next month.
Grammy-winning producer Andrew Watt, who has worked with everyone from renowned musicians such as Pearl Jam, Ozzy Osbourne, Miley Cyrus, and Justin Bieber, is overseeing the session.
The collaboration marks Spears’ first return to making music since her conservatorship was terminated in November 2021.
The pop star was under a conservatorship for more than 13 years. The 40-year-old’s personal and financial affairs were controlled by her father Jamie Spears as part of the legal arrangement.
After her bombshell testimony last summer, she retained a lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, who helped her get out of the legal arrangement within months. First, the pop singer's father was suspended by the court in September.
However, the legal battle is not over yet as Spears is fighting against her father and former business manager, Tri Star Sports & Entertainment, over her finances and allegations of abusive behavior during the conservatorship.
The next hearing in the case will take place on Wednesday.
