Tina Turner has emerged from retirement for an unexpected collaboration with house producer Kygo.

We had to do a double take, but it’s happened.

Set your alarm for bright and early on Friday 17 July for their track with the same name as Tina’s What’s Love Got To Do With It will be something to look forward to.

He took to Twitter to post: ‘Can’t believe I’m releasing a collab with @LoveTinaTurner this Friday!

‘‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ is one of my all time favorite songs, and it feels surreal to get the opportunity to work with such a legendary artist! Can’t wait for you all to hear it.’

Tina’s 1984 smash hit remains her first and only solo song to reach number one on the Hot 100 in the U.S.

The track won three Grammys for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

In 2008, the iconic entertainer went on her Tina! 50th Anniversary Tour, which became one of the highest-selling ticketed shows of 2008 and 2009.

She announced it would be her final tour, and mostly retired except for the occasional appearances and recordings.

Last year, Kygo remixed Whitney’s Houston’s Higher Love cover so he has experience with icons.

The star – real name Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll – just released his new album Golden Hour on 29 May 2020.

Someone’s been incredibly busy.
