Toro Y Moi and Astronauts, etc. cover Elton John’s “Rocket Man” — listen

on September 11, 2015, 4:20pm

In just a few days, Toro y Moi will embark on a North American tour, a month-long trek featuring opening act Astronauts, etc., aka Anthony Ferraro, who also plays keyboards in his live band. To help kick off the festivities, both artists have teamed up to record a cover of the Elton John classic “Rocket Man”. Chill, groove-filled, and velvety, it’s a surprising rendition that also somehow manages to jibe with Toro’s and Astronauts’ musical styles.

Listen in below.

Find the upcoming tour dates below. Toro will be supporting his latest album, What For?, and surprise mixtape, Samantha. Astronauts will be supporting his forthcoming full-length, Mind Out Wandering, due out on September 18th.
