Pnau aka Empire of the Sun reveal their Elton John project with ‘Sad’..
Elton John vs Pnau!
Pnau have unveiled their new single ‘Sad’.
The track – out July 16 – serves as the second release from their ‘Elton vs. Pnau’ project, which sees them reworking a number of Sir Elton John’s classic hits from the 1970s into entirely new songs.
‘Sad’ includes elements of ‘Nice and Slow’, ‘Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word’, ‘Friends’, ‘Curtains’ and ‘Crazy Water’.
The band’s full-length album also includes previous song ‘Good Morning To The Night’, as well as 45 other samples across the eight tracks.
Pnau are also know as Empire of the Sun which was their side project. I loved their sound on that project and these re-working have a hint of that in them – love it!
