Yola Covers Elton John’s ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’
Yola released a cover of “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” by Elton John that was introduced by Elton himself. The cover is one of two bonus tracks featured on the newly released deluxe edition of Yola’s Walk Through The Fire album and has been accompanied by a video.
Walk Through The Fire was produced by Dan Auerbach and released by his Easy Eye Sound label. “I Don’t Want To Lie” was the other bonus track included on the deluxe edition of the LP, which was nominated for multiple 2020 Grammy Awards. Read a statement from Yola about the Walk Through The Fire bonus tracks:
Can’t believe it has only been a year since we announced Walk Through Fire, working with Dan Auerbach and the team has been an absolute dream and so proud of everything we have achieved. So many great songs from that session didn’t make the final cut, including ‘I Don’t Wanna Lie.’ I’m a HUGE Elton fan and we’ve been playing ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ on the tour and wanted to cut a version for this release which Dan also produced! And then for Elton to personally premiere it, well that is the icing on the cake!
