Elton John is set to bring together re-workings of some of his biggest hits on new album 'Revamp'.
The project finds Sir Elton connecting with some current pop greats, each taking it in turn to reinterpret some of his classic songs.
Out on April 6th, it's a potentially fascinating wander through the golden discs crafted by Elton John and co-conspirator Bernie Taupin.
The cast list is wonderfully broad: Florence + The Machine tackle 'Tiny Dancer', while Queens Of The Stone Age rip through 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road'.
Other standouts include Ed Sheeran's version of 'Candle In The Wind', Mary J. Blige on 'Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word' and new music from Mumford & Sons, The Killers, Sam Smith, and Lady Gaga.
Elton John says: “'It's always a huge compliment when an artist loves your song enough to take the time and effort to rework it. As songwriters, Bernie and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp choose to add their own unique twist in the process. It means that our music is still relevant and ultimately that our songs continue to reach new audiences. We're humbled and thank them all for their generosity.”
