A friend reminded me of how very amazing Empire of the Sun were this weekend, and I was pleased to tell them about their latest outing: Elton John vs Pnau. Autralian duo PNAU, aka Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes (Empire of the Sun) delivered Whenever, written and produced with Elton for Cirque du Soleil last year…and the collaboration didn’t end there.
Their latest project Good Morning To The Night under the moniker Elton John vs Pnau is a re-imagination of vintage tracks from the piano man himself. The project, officially blessed by the Sir received the video treatment today, featuring vintage Elton footage amidst a beautifully colored backdrop of city and sky.
Sad, the second single following the title track which we shared a bit ago, fuzes together elements of Friends, Nice and Slow, Curtains, Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word, Nice and Slow and Crazy Water.
Loving the album art (above) for Good Morning To The Night, which drops July 17th.
