Published: Tuesday 13th Apr 2021 by Ryan

Rina Sawayama is back with new music.

For, the rising music superstar has just announced that music legend Elton John will be joining her on a new version of her song ‘Chosen Family.’

Full story below…

The track was originally featured on Sawayama’s 2020 debut album ‘SAWAYAMA.’

In a statement, the ‘Lucid’ singer said:

“It was such a joy and honour to rework ‘Chosen Family’ with the legendary Elton John. he song means so much to both of us, and recording it together was such a special experience I will never forget. I got shivers when I heard his voice through the monitor and became emotional when he added the piano parts.”

“Elton has been such a huge supporter from before the album, and when we finally met to record this song we clicked from the get go. I hope people can hear the magic!”

The new rendition of the track will be released on April 14, with a video released the same day.

However, ‘Chosen Family’ is not the only collaboration in the works. The news comes after Sawayama teased that she and Lady Gaga have a collaboration in the works (as we reported here).

In the meantime, check out the original version of ‘Chosen Family’ below…


We, for one, cannot wait for this collaboration. Sawayama delivered one of last year’s best albums and we cannot wait to see what she has in store going forward.
