Yard Act Groups With Elton John for New Model of ‘100% Endurance’


British rock quartet Yard Act has teamed with Elton John for a brand new model of the track “100% Endurance” from its acclaimed debut album, The Overload, which hit No. 2 within the U.Okay. earlier this 12 months.

Recalling the genesis of the unlikely collaboration, Yard Act frontman James Smith says, “Elton John noticed our stuff, and he began telling the press he thought we had been good, after which we chatted on the cellphone and after just a few calls, I mentioned, ‘Elton, do you need to come to the studio and play piano on a tune?’ as a result of, fuck it, it doesn’t matter if he says no. Anyway, he mentioned ‘sure,’ so it doesn’t matter that he didn’t say no. I don’t know what else to say. He’s sensible. Switched on, hilarious and an incredible musician.”

Enthuses John, “From the primary second I heard Yard Act, I fell in love with James’ lyrics, and the best way he’s delivered the track. Their sound is such a breath of contemporary air. When James known as and requested if I'd come into the studio, I immediately beloved the thought. I began out as a session musician within the late ’60s, and I completely beloved it then. It was such a thrill to be thrown in with musicians I’d by no means met earlier than, it pushed me out of my consolation zone, and I grew to become a greater musician. Throughout lockdown, I had the time on my palms to actually begin doing that in a concerted manner once more, and I fell in love with the problem and the method over again. They’re a really particular band, with an enormous future forward of them, and I’m honored they’ve let me be part of their journey.”

The album model of “100% Endurance” was accompanied by a video starring British actor David Thewlis, though for the second there doesn’t look like a clip within the works to assist the John-enhanced monitor.

Yard Act will play its largest headline present on Dec. 1 at O2 Kentish City Discussion board in London, following a North American tour starting Oct. 5 in Vancouver. The band is on the street in Europe all summer season and performs in Amsterdam tonight (July 1).
