Lady Gaga Cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” Leaks Ahead of ‘Revamp’ Release
UPDATE: Lady Gaga has officially released the track.
EARLIER: Lady Gaga's cover of Elton John's "Your Song" has leaked one week ahead of Revamp, his forthcoming compilation album featuring covers of his greatest hits by famous artists.
Gaga's rendition keeps things pretty true to the original, opting for the same piano-driven instrumentals and her signature warble.
Other musicians appearing on the record include Sam Smith, Pink, Ed Sheeran, Alessia Cara, Demi Lovato, and Mary J. Blige, among others. John is also set to release Restoration, featuring his tracks reimagined by country stars like Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and Chris Stapleton.
"It's always a huge compliment when an artist loves your song enough to take the time and effort to rework it,” Elton John said in a previous statement. “As songwriters, Bernie and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp & Restoration 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.”
John is currently prepping for his massive 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road" retirement tour which will see the legendary icon perform over 300 shows around the world, launching Sept. 8 in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
