Rina Sawayama and Elton John to join forces for new version of ‘Chosen Family’

Landing on Wednesday!

Joining forces as an instantly iconic duo, Rina Sawayama and Elton John will be sharing a new version of ‘Chosen Family’ on Wednesday!

With the original track taken from Rina’s debut ‘SAWAYAMA’, she says of the collab, “It was such a joy and honour to rework Chosen Family with the legendary Elton John. The 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!”

Tune in on Wednesday to hear more!
