Britney Spears releases first new music in 6 years

Britney Spears has released her first new music since being released from a conservatorship that controlled almost every aspect of her life.

Hold Me Closer - a duet with Sir Elton John - hit streaming sites on Friday, marking Spears' return to music after a six-year hiatus.

"It's pretty damn cool that I'm singing with one of the most classic men of our time," she said ahead of the release.

"I'm kinda overwhelmed... it's a big deal to me!"

The song incorporates three of Sir Elton's classic hits - Tiny Dancer, The One and Don't Go Breaking My Heart - over a summer-fresh club beat.
