DLC Week of 12/30: Elton John - Dua Lipa and Olivia Rodrigo

Break Week 2

Combining influences from multiple Elton John hits, the vocal talents of Dua Lipa and disco-esque production from PNAU, “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” was responsible for giving Elton John a UK Top 10 single in now six decades. The track features a diverse array of synthesizer layers like strings, filtered chords and a plucky syncopated bassline all overtop of a danceable drum pattern. The vocals start with Elton singing a verse and pre-chorus from his 1989 hit “Sacrifice” and Dua Lipa singing the chorus of John’s 1972 hit “Rocket Man.” “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” is a perfect combination of old and new sounds and a great track to round out the year.

“brutal” is the fifth single from Olivia Rodrigo’s 2021 debut album Sour. The track starts out with a lovely string arrangement before moving into the massive descending guitar line paired with a deep bass line and heavy drum pattern. Olivia Rodrigo’s lyrics explore feelings of hopelessness, disappointment and angst that speaks to the Generation Z experience. And the juxtaposition of the talked verse section and the distorted high intensity chorus help amplify those emotions.  

Check out Olivia Rodrigo’s latest album Sour featuring some of the year’s biggest songs like “drivers license,” “deja vu,” “good 4 u,” and “brutal.”

Both of these awesome tracks as well as all the releases until 1/13 are included in the Season 24 Season Pass. Pick it up today and save big on the entire season of DLC.
