Any fans of Elton John in the audience?Â
Either way, a reissue of his seventh studio albumÂ Goodbye Yellow Brick RoadÂ is set to drop on its 40th anniversary, that being Tuesday, March 25. The Deluxe Edition and box set will include new versions of tracks from the album, undertaken by such artists as John Grant, The Band Perry, Fall Out Boy, Hunter Hayes, the Zac Brown Band, Ed Sheeran, Emeli SandÃ©, Imelda May andÂ Miguel & Wale, evidence of which we have here.
Listen to the original version of "Bennie And The Jets" below and let us know how they compare.
You can pre-order the reissue via iTunes, if you wish. It'll be made availableÂ on CD, vinyl and limited-edition yellow vinyl as well. The box set will include a DVD of Bryan Forbes' 1973 filmÂ Elton John and Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye to Norma Jean and Other Things, an illustrated hardcover book complete with RARE photos, recordings ofÂ Live at Hammersmith 1973Â on CDÂ and other collectibles.Â
Hey kids, plug into the faithless
Maybe they're blinded
But Bennie makes them ageless
We shall survive, let us take ourselves along
Where we fight our parents out in the streets
To find who's right and who's wrong
