If you’ve al­ways loved El­ton John’s mu­sic but were never that keen on his voice, this new trib­ute re­lease is the per­fect fix. Re­vamp of­fers up 13 EJ hits reimag­ined by top tal­ent like Pink, Cold­pay, Ed Sheeran, Mary J Blige and Mi­ley Cyrus. High­lights in­clude Florence + The Ma­chine’s blue-eyed soul ver­sion of Tiny Dancer, Lady Gaga’s un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally ten­der twist on Your Song and Sam Smith’s el­e­gant read­ing of Daniel. “There is some­thing about that song that speaks to me and my fam­ily and friends,” Sam told DNA. “Not only am I com­pletely in love with El­ton’s mu­sic and have been ever since I can re­mem­ber, he has also be­come an im­por­tant fig­ure in my life and a beau­ti­ful friend.” Aww, we love gay BFFs.
