Joel Corry wants to collaborate with Sir Elton John again.
The 34-year-old DJ has stayed in touch with ‘Rocket Man’ legend Elton, 76, ever since working with him on a remix of ‘Hold Me Closer’ with Britney Spears and after learning that he likes to listen to his music in the shower , he is now hoping that one day they will be able to get in the studio together at some point.
He told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “We’ve stayed in touch and when we linked up last time he said he was such a big fan of dance music and he loved all my records.
“He said he listens to them in the shower. I would absolutely love to write with him.
“Hopefully, if the schedules align, we can get in the studio together.”
The ‘Another Friday Night’ hitmaker previously hailed Elton as “the nicest, chilled guy”, and someone who has “his ear to the ground with new music”.
Speaking on the BRIT Awards’ ‘The Red Carpet Treatment’ podcast hosted by Nella Rose, he said: “His passion for music is amazing… the whole experience was great. Who knows man, next year 2023 Joel Corry and Elton John the banger might be coming…
“I know he’s going to Australia for Christmas. But he said when he gets back from Australia wants to get in the studio. So fingers crossed.”
Meanwhile, Joel almost missed out on a chance to get to know the iconic musician after missing his phone call during a set at Ibiza Rocks.
He recalled: “So, I’m literally DJing in the middle of Ibiza Rocks. Yeah, mid-set beats are flowing, I mean I am in the groove…
“My phone is next to my decks and I suddenly see a number popping up ringing that I didn’t recognise… phoning from America.
“Then by the end of my set, my tour manager came up behind me and when he wrote it on his phone, yeah, and he was like, ‘Sir Elton John is trying to call you’.
“I went, ‘Oh my God. I’ve just missed Elton John’s called me’. I was a bit wavy, do you know what I mean, had a few vodka cokes so I was like ‘shut up bruv’, I thought he was joking.
“But anyway, got back to my apartment. Sir Elton called me and we had the best time ever.”
