Earlier this month, it was revealed that a slew of pop/rock artists and country music stars would be getting together to honor Sir Elton John and his longtime lyricist Bernie Taupin by contributing covers of their biggest hits for a double album. Shortly after the records’ announcement, Demi Lovato and Q-Tip released their contribution to the album; a cover of “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” from 1993’s Duet. On Friday (March 30), just a few days after her birthday, Lady Gaga unleashed her cover of John’s 1970’s hit, “Your Song.”
The fact that Mother Monster decided to go with this track does not come as much of a surprise. During the 2010 Grammys, the singer performed the song with John during the telecast. As if that wasn’t enough, Lady Gaga will also perform the “Your Song” during I’m Still Standing, the upcoming all-star Grammy salute to John. The previously recorded program will air on April 10 on CBS. For now, listen to Lady Gaga’s version of “Your Song” above.
“Your Song” will join 25 other covers on the impending Revamp and Restoration double album. The two albums will be released on April 6 through Island Records/Universal Music Group Nashville. The 26-track compilation will include two albums; Revamp and Restoration. Revamp will feature reworked versions of the songs by some of pop music’s biggest stars including Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, The Killers, and Florence and the Machine. Unlike Revamp, Restoration will feature country-renditions of John’s hits by artists such as Little Big Town, Marren Morris, Miranda Lambert, and Kacey Musgraves.
