Toro Y Moi And Astronauts Etc. Covered Elton John

A golden oldie gets a reworking.

Chaz Bundick enjoys covering classics: one of his best songs as Toro Y Moi is a shimmery rendition of the 1985 Cherrelle/Alexander O'Neal duet "Saturday Love." (That track was originally written and produced by pop wizards Jam & Lewis.) Toro Y Moi's latest cover is a group effort—he teamed up with Anthony Ferraro's Astronauts Etc. project to reimagine Elton John's "Rocket Man." Their version is a sweet lullabye, with the exception of some determined, hard-headed bass playing. Listen below, and read Bundick's FADER interview. Elton John fans can also tune in to Beats 1 Radio to catch the star's weekly program, "The Rocket Hour."
