Listen to Little Big Town Perform “Rocket Man” From Upcoming Elton John Tribute Album

Little Big Town got some intersetellar help for their cover of “Rocket Man” on the upcoming Elton John tribute album, Restoration, which drops on April 6.

With the help of NASA’s Dr. Scott Bolton, LBT was able to utilize “space sounds” from the recent Mission Juno, which explored Jupiter.

“One of the main reasons why we chose ‘Rocket Man’ was because we were so intrigued by not just, of course, Elton John, but by using the sounds from the Juno project, so we had all these Jupiter noises,” says LBT’s Karen Fairchild. “We were like, ‘What if we did the a capella version of “Rocket Man” on the Elton record?’ Frank Liddell [producer] loved that idea, and we were off to the races.”

In addition, Little Big Town—along with Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and more—will take part in the upcoming Grammy salute to Elton John on CBS on April 10 at 9 p.m.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
