NEW MUSIC: ELTON JOHN & STEVIE WONDER | FINISH LINE
Elton John and Stevie Wonder have teamed up for a new collaboration entitled "Finish Line." Elton John and Stevie Wonder were the first two artists to have albums that debuted at #1 on the Billboard album charts, back in the pre-SoundScan days when that was pretty much an impossible task, and they’ve worked together a few times over the years. Stevie Wonder, for instance, played harmonica on Elton John’s 1983 hit “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues,” and both Wonder and John sang on Dionne Warwick’s 1985 chart-topper “That’s What Friends Are For.” The track will appear on "The Lockdown Sessions," and recently announced collaborations album, featuring Lil Nas X, Miley Cyrus, Dua Lipa, Eddie Vedder and more. In a few weeks, Elton John will release the new album "The Lockdown Sessions," a collection of collaborations with people like Stevie Nicks, Eddie Vedder, and Young Thug and Nicki Minaj. We’ve already heard his tracks with Dua Lipa and Charlie Puth, and now his latest “Finish Line,” with Stevie Wonder. It’s the first straight-up duet that John and Wonder have ever released, and it’s a big gospel-style number with backup vocals from Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir. "The Lockdown Sessions" is out on October 22nd via Interscope Records.
