Music legend Sir Elton John has collaborated with pop superstar Charlie Puth for a new duet, “After All.”
Released ahead of John’s forthcoming collection of collaborations titled The Lockdown Sessions, created entirely during his time spent in quarantine over the past year and a half, the new song revolves around the themes of true love and renewed hope.
“Oh, oh, nothing compares to you / Oh no, baby / They were just doin’ it wrong (Doin’ it wrong) / I gave up on love until you made me believe in it after all,” the pair harmonize in the chorus of the ballad.
The 3-minute track was penned by the pair alongside Jacob Kasher Hindlin and came together in just around the same amount of time, Puth revealed during an interview with Apple Music 1‘s Zane Lowe.
“The song is three minutes and five seconds. This man [Elton John] played the entire Rhodes part, the piano part, in three minutes and five seconds. We’re like, ‘OK, there’s your song,’” Puth shared.
In a joint statement released by the pair, the singers spoke about their experience working alongside one another, with John describing Puth as “an amazing musician”; “We just hit it off,” the musician said. “He’s become a friend and a friend of the family … We just had an amazing chemistry in the studio.”
The Lockdown Sessions is slated to be released on October 22, 2021 and is available for pre-order now.
