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

Toro y Moi will venture on a North American tour in a few days, featuring opening act Astronauts, etc., also known as Anthony Ferraro, who will play keyboards in his live band as well. To kick off the tour, both artists teamed up and recorded a cover of the Elton John classic, “Rocket Man.” Groove-filled and chill, it is a surprising cover that managed to fit into styles of Toro and Astronauts.

Listen to it below.

Find the tour dates below. Toro will be supporting his album, What For?, and surprise mixtape, Samantha. Astronauts will be touring in support of his upcoming full-length album, Mind Out Wandering, which is set to be released on August 18th.
