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."
