Elton John + Stevie Wonder = Magic!
I dig that it’s 2 old veterans who’ve done so much and seen so much singing about the Finish Line. We’re still swinging and not at all prepared to surrender our pop culture to Billie Eilish.
Plus the Sunday Service Choir (Kanye West’s choir…oh, yo!) and…AND even more special a Stevie Wonder harmonica solo.
This is Black Church music.
This is special.
This is soul.
Elton said: “On this track that we did, he produced something very special that Stevie Wonder fans haven’t heard for a long time.” Indeed.
This is a single from Elton’s upcoming album The Lockdown Sessions to be released on October 22, 2021.
