For the music industry, 2021 has been full of surprises. But a new album from Elton John might be the biggest one yet. 

Due October 22nd, The Lockdown Sessions will feature eclectic collaborations with artists from across the sonic spectrum: Stevie Wonder, Nicki Minaj, Lil Nas X, Yo-Yo Ma—the list goes on and on.

The record will also include a hotly anticipated collab with electronic music wunderkind SG Lewis. Co-written with British singer-songwriter Frances, "Orbit" came to fruition after the artists linked in March for a discussion on John's Apple Music 1 show, Rocket Hour

"I would desperately like to do something with you as far as writing or doing something," the legendary musician said to Lewis. "So I'll get you my email, email me and let's get together and do something, okay?"
