Elton John has recently released two cover songs as part of Spotify's Singles series.
He has covered a young musician, Khalid's 2017 hot single, 'Young Dumb & Broke' and re-recorded one of his legendary hits, 'Benny and the Jets', both recorded at The Colosseum, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
In a statement, John says, "I discovered Khalid’s music a few years ago, and have been a fan ever since. We finally met when I played his hometown of El Paso last year.” He continues, “It’s a thrill to be a small part of any new artist’s journey, and it’s been wonderful to see his star continue to rise and rise. ‘Young Dumb & Broke’ is a fabulous song, one of my favourites and I’m really pleased that he liked my cover enough to contribute vocals.”
