Elton John and PNAU’s Collaboration Tops UK Album Charts

Written by Kiel Egging on July 23, 2012

Booming Sydney dance duo PNAU have helped Elton John get his first number one album in his homeland in 22 years – with their collaboration topping the UK charts this week.

The collaboration – Good Morning To The Night – is a reworked selection of John’s classic hits from 1970-1976.  John gave the duo access to his back catalogue to put a new spin on the tracks.

Good Morning To The Night held off Maroon 5’s Overexposed and Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange to reign supreme on the charts this week, with Paul Simon’s Graceland and Ed Sheeran’s + rounding out the top five.

You can listen to a podcast of an interview which Music Feeds‘ Patrick Abboud did with PNAU’s Peter Mayes about the album here.

Last week, Elton John announced an Australian Tour in November, with dates in Perth, Canberra and Sydney only.
