Britney Spears and Elton John are set to release Hold Me Closer on August 26, a long-awaited collaboration that takes its name from the British musician’s 1972 hit song Tiny Dancer.

“Hold Me Closer” is Spears’ first “single” since her album Glory, which was released on August 26, 2016, and as of last November, the American pop icon was no longer subject to legal guardianship, first by part of his father and the latter months by a California state official, which lasted 13 years.

According to various media outlets, this work was leaked on Thursday evening, sparking anger in the singer’s fan networks, who have criticized those who have already heard for not waiting for the official release date.
