Elton Has Teamed Up With Yard Act

Written by Chief Editor.

Yard Act are set to release a new studio version of their track, 100% Endurance, with Sir Elton.

 
The reworked track will be out on the first of July. 
 
James Smith revealed how the collaboration came to be: nme.com/news/music/yard-act-with-elton-john.
 
''Elton John saw our stuff and he started telling the press he thought we were good and then we chatted on the phone and after a few calls, 
I said, 'Elton, do you want to come to the studio and play piano on a tune?' ''
 
The pop veteran, who agreed, previously spoke of his fondness for the Leeds band, calling their musical style ''a different ballgame.''
 
He added: ''I can't do it but I love it and I wonder how they do it.''
 
Yard Act displayed their admiration for Elton as well, releasing a stripped-back rendition of Tiny Dancer in January.
