Elton Confirms New Covers Album


Sir Elton John is set to release his first ever covers album.
The Rocket Man has always put out new material, but he's now teaming up with legendary producer T-Bone Burnett to record versions of classic tracks.
Sir Elton tells Britain's Sunday Express, "The U.S. record company asked me to do an album of Motown and a Christmas album. I said, 'F**k off!'
"I'm going to do a solo album with T-Bone Burnett of 50 songs with an orchestra, in a few takes. A bit of Roy Orbison, Ricky Nelson... songs like Little Things Mean A Lot."
