Elle Goulding Revives Classic Elton John Track

We’ve already highlighted that David Bowie’s “Heroes” claims the UK top spot. One might think that there is a shortage of new material as the classic Elton John track “Your Song” is back on the charts. Easily one of the most covered tracks, Ellie Goulding the single is her most successful to date, beating the No.4 peak of “Starry Eyes.” “Your Song” is to be included on the re-release of her debut album Bright Lights.

In an unusual feat, the track has actually climbed 39-3-2 in its third week. One of the key reasons is its inclusion in the Christmas 2010 TV advert for the department store chain John Lewis. The new version was produced by Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett.

Originally titled Lights, the re-release of Ellie Goulding’s album will contain six brand-new tracks. To date, five singles has been lifted off the set so far.  Originally released in March 2010, the set knocked Lady Gaga’s The Fame off the No.1 spot. Goulding was born in 1986 and made her breakthrough via the BBC Sound of 2010 poll. She also earned the Critics’ Choice Award at the 2010 BRIT Awards. The singer is also the guest vocalist on Tinie Tempah’s “Wonderman.”
