AUDIO: Lady Gaga Covers ‘Your Song’ for Elton John Tribute Album
Star-studded, two-disc compilation to include contributions from Miley Cyrus, Chris Stapleton, Ed Sheeran, and moreApril 2, 2018
Lady Gaga has released a riveting cover of Elton John’s “Your Song.”
The track (above) will appear on “Revamp: Reimagining the Songs of Elton John & Bernie Taupin,” one of two tribute albums hitting shelves on Friday, featuring new versions of the legendary songwriting duo’s most classic tunes.
It’s not the Stern Show regular’s first time covering Elton’s beloved 1970 ballad, of course, as the two teamed up together on stage in 2010 and sang “Your Song” at the Grammys. Earlier this year she also put on a Sir Elton-inspired outfit and performed the track at Madison Square Garden as part of “I’m Still Standing,” a Grammy salute to the acclaimed artist. When Gaga sat down with Howard in 2011, she opened up about her relationship with Elton, revealing the two of them speak regularly.
Organized by Sir Elton John himself, “Revamp” boasts tracks from a number of well-known pop stars in addition to Gaga, including Queens of the Stone Age, Coldplay, Q-Tip, Demi Lovato, and past Stern Show guests Pink, Ed Sheeran, and Miley Cyrus.
“Revamp’s” accompanying album “Restoration,” meanwhile, was put together by Taupin and features contemporary country musicians like Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Don Henley, and Chris Stapleton delivering their renditions of various Elton hits. The album also includes a second contribution from Miley, who proved last year on the Stern Show that she knows how to deliver epic covers of iconic songs.
“Revamp” and “Restoration” are available Friday. In the meanwhile, listen to Chris Stapleton performing “I Want Love” (below).
