QOTSA and more for Elton John covers LP

QOTSA and more for Elton John covers LP
Elton John is curating a covers LP of his considerable back catalogue, and there are some interesting choices. 
Okay, the bad news: No Crocodile rock.
The good news: Queens of the Stone Age, The Killers, Florence and the Machine, Lady Gaga, Mary J Blige and Mumford and Sons are among the acts reinterpreting the hits. Your mileage might vary, however, at Ed Sheeran doing Candle in the Wind. 
Revamp is out April 6th, and here’s Elton bigging it up: “It’s always a huge compliment when an artist loves your song enough to take the time and effort to rework it… As songwriters, Bernie and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp choose to add their own unique twist in the process… It means that our music is still relevant and ultimately that our songs continue to reach new audiences. We’re humbled and thank them all for their generosity.”
